At a board banquet, Dr. Boorstin, Director of National Museum of History and Technology, speaks of the problems of the historian and the museum director. Specifically, he talks about the challenges of research, interpreting objects, materials which are surrounded by controversy, researching the ephemeral such as oral tradition, and writing about subjects which have not been well chronciled such as what people ate, the American family, and the failures which lead to a successful invention. Boorstin titled his remarks "What Historians Don't Talk About." Question and answer session follows speech.
