Abstract

By examining transcripts of the unpublished minutes of meetings held in January 1967 by the Commission of Fine Arts in Washington, D. C., the author accounts for the government's rejection of Marcel Breuer's design for a Franklin Delano Roosevelt memorial, one of several rejected proposals for a monument still awaiting completion half a century after the death of the president.
