Page Talbott appeared from the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, the first stop in a six-city tour of the international traveling exhibit, “Benjamin Franklin: In Search of a Better World” that focused on Benjamin Franklin’s life and marked the 300th anniversary of his birth. She spoke about the collection, Franklin’s impact on U.S. history, and responded to telephone calls.

The exhibit was organized and created by the Benjamin Franklin Tercentenary, a private, non-profit alliance established to mark the 300th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin’s birth (1706-2006). Ms. Talbott was the chief curator of the exhibit as well as the associate director of the Tercentenary. An Act of Congress in 2002 also created the Benjamin Franklin Tercentenary Commission to study and recommend government programs to commemorate his 300th anniversary. close
