OAS Congratulates SALALM on its 60th Anniversary

SALALM is very appreciative of Ambassador Albert R. Ramdin, Assistant Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), for his congratulatory letter on the observance of the 60th anniversary of the founding of SALALM.  Support from the OAS was critical in SALALM’s formative period.  From 1956 through 1973, SALALM’s Executive Secretariat was unofficially based within the OAS’ Library Development Program, led by the visionary Marietta Daniels Shepard.  The full text of Ambassador Ramdin’s letter can be accessed here.

I would also like to acknowledge the invaluable assistance of Beverly Wharton-Lake, Director of the Columbus Memorial Library at the OAS, for securing the letter from Ambassador Ramdin.  SALALM appreciates the consideration and thoughtfulness of both the Columbus Memorial Library and the Organization of American States on the observance of this milestone in the history of our organization.
