Following the original instructions of the Secretary to publish material in areas in which the Institution is interested or might be interested, Smithsonian has covered a broad range of topics in science, art, and history. Circulation grew from 180,000 in 1970 to almost 2,000,000 in 1982. Edward K. Thompson served as Editor, 1970-1980, and as Publisher, 1974-1980. Joseph J.
