Historical Note:
In 1980, the special events staff was part of the Office of Public Affairs, which reported to the director of the Office of Public and Academic Programs in the National Museum of History and Technology (NMHT). Geraldine B. Sanderson, public information officer for the Office of Public Affairs, was also responsible for special events. When NMHT was renamed the National Museum of American History (NMAH) in 1980, the special events staff was separated from Public Affairs to become the Office of Special Events. Susan B. Beaudette was appointed museum program coordinator for the Office, reporting to the director of NMAH. In 1983, Anne Walton became special events assistant to Beaudette. The Office of Special Events was placed under the Office of External Affairs in 1986.

The Office of Special Events is primarily responsible for planning exhibition openings, symposia, award presentations, musical and dance performances, official ceremonies, and staff holiday celebrations at NMAH. The Office is also involved in the Folklife Festival and the Doubleday Lecture Series. Staff has included Geraldine B. Sanderson, public information officer, 1978-1980; Susan B. Beaudette, museum program coordinator, 1981-1985; and Anne Walton, special events assistant, 1983- .
