There's A NYTimes Story on a two-day conference on the Nixon tapes. John Carlin, archivist of the United States, said it would be several months before experiments on blank tape from the Nixon era would show whether it was worth exposing the erased part of the tape to the risks of restoration by current technology.
They also discussed unreleased tapes of Kennedy's, and from the Johnson administration. Everyone at the conference was delighted with the availability of presidential tapes and their being broadcast.
Meanwhile, The Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace broke ground on an expansion that will double its size and feature a full-size replica of the White House East Room. The Los Angeles Daily News has Nixon, Reagan libraries bring history buff west.
