The Director of the National Park Service is sending you the following announcements and actions on properties for the National Register of Historic Places.

Impact of Mail Irradiation Program on National Register Nominations

As you may be aware, the US Postal Service (USPS) intends to irradiate mail in selected USPS facilities, including our mail facility here in Washington D.C., to sterilize it from possible anthrax contamination using high-energy electron irradiation technology. We have concerns about the possible effects of irradiation on nominations to the National Register that pass through these facilities. We are advising you to avoid using USPS for envelopes and flats that contain National Register nominations, Determinations of Eligibility, and any other material that will be archived here.

Paper will be seriously affected, losing tensile strength and increasing brittleness. In addition to accelerating the aging processes, discoloration is also to be expected. Oxidation is expected from the interaction with ozone formed in air (and within the packages) during irradiation. Photographs will be adversely affected as well. Magnetic media (floppy disks, zip disks, audio and video tape) will probably lose significant information content.

We strongly recommend using an alternate shipper such as United Parcel Service (UPS) or Federal Express (FedEx) for sending nominations to the National Register of Historic Places. Use our physical location address only:

National Register of Historic Places Suite 400 800 North Capitol Street, NW Washington DC 20002

The National Register of Historic Places teaching with Historic Places invites you to visit the new online lesson plan, “Springwood: Birthplace and Home to Franklin D. Roosevelt,” at Understand how Springwood was the keystone in President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's public as well as private life by playing host to some very dramatic events in American history. The house, situated in a landscaped clearing on a bluff overlooking the HudsonRiver in New York, is a large, rambling structure faced with stucco and fieldstone. This is Springwood, the only place in the United States where a President was born, maintained a lifelong connection, and lies buried. The lesson plan comes with historic images, questions, readings and maps to help both educators and students appreciate this unique location. Explore the home which hosted the British royal family, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, before World War II, and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill during the war, where the two allied leaders planned wartime strategy.
