The Mississippi Historical Society has just announced its annual meeting for this year. It will be held at the newly opened Old Capitol and its theme will be, of all things, Preservation in Mississippi. In addition to speakers that include many of the people who helped guide the preservation movement in the state over the past decade–like Mr. Elbert Hilliard, director of the Dept. of Archives & History for one thousand and seven years (I think that’s right)–the event will also include a keynote speech by Peter Brink, senior vice president of programs for the National Trust. His speech will be at a banquet at the Old Capitol Inn, just up the street from, you guessed it, the Old Capitol. The meeting begins Thursday evening, March 5, and extends through Saturday morning, March 7, with convenient breaks at night for sleeping.
