Correspondence regarding contributions, books for review, and all other editorial
A Note from the Archivist
I am pleased to announce that beginning with the next issue, Prologue will have as its editor John J. Rumbarger, who has joined the staff of the National Archives and Records Service.
Rumbarger received his Ph.D. in American history from the University of Pennsylvania. Since 1969 he has been assistant executive secretary of the American Historical Association and editor of the AHA Newsletter and the Employment Information Bulletin.
For the first four years, a most trying time for a new journal, Prologue was ably edited by Herman J. Viola, who has moved on to broader responsibilities at the Smithsonian Institution. It was Viola's inspired and dedicated leadership that launched Prologue. The style and format of the journal is directly attri. butable to his efforts, and the National Archives will always be in his debt for the magnificent job he performed in seeing the journal through its infancy.
Viola never ceased to improve Prologue during his four years as editor. We are looking forward to continued progress under the editorship of John J. Rumbarger.
