Knowledge Culture. Mr. St. Clair will speak to members about what he
learned in writing the book, share some of the association's historical
highlights, and describe how these first one hundred years have been, as he
puts it, "just prelude, a lead-in to our association's true greatness to
come."  Guy St. Clair is well known to SLA members as “Mr. Knowledge
Services”, as SLA President in the early 1990's, and as a consulting
specialist for knowledge services at SMR International (

St. Clair’s talk starting at 7pm. Long-term DC SLA members will also be
honored at the event with gifts provided by the SLA Government Information
