We have felt a special responsibility in undertaking this task. The challenge
of preserving both the beauty and the substance of a significant portion of our
environmental heritage, in the interests of this and future generations, is one
that calls for the best that those with appropriate knowledge and competence
can give. Our committee under the chairmanship of William J. Robbins, has
devoted sustained and careful thought to the several aspects of the problem.
Dr. Robbins assures me that the committee members will be glad to discuss with
you any parts of their report if you would find that helpful.
