Track the progress of the New England States Pavilion through Progress Report #1 and #2 at http://www.worldsfai...new-england.htm. And check out page 3 of Report #2 - seems there was a Treadway involved in the design. Any relation, Randy?

Does anyone know if there were any other progress reports besides these two?

For 1982 Knoxville fans, there are several magazine articles and a "Deluxe Pictorial Souvenir" booklet added to http://www.worldsfai...lle82/index.htm. Thanks much to Kevin Carsh for scanning these for me!

Here are all of the latest updates - looks like I forgot to add some to this thread earlier.

If they did an outstanding job--- definitely.

If they did a lousy job-- never heard of 'em ! :)

1964 New York: Added 1965 fact sheet and employee newsletters to the

Bell System page.

I think the employee newsletters are particularly fascinating - I hope you enjoy them!

Just started reading the Aug 2, 1965 news letter and noticed the year-to-date attendance of 3.6 million. While that's a lot, it's also just a third of total fairgoers. I think this is true of most (all) exhibits, that less than 50% of admissions visit a particular exhibit. Personally , I couldn't imagine going to the Fair without hitting all the majors. So, is this a real discrepancy, or does it have something to do with repeat attendance?
