An editorial by Audrey Davis, President of the Smithsonian Institution Women's Council, is published in the "Letters to the Editor" section of "The Torch," in response to the announcement that Rep. Edward P. Boland has been appointed to the Board of Regents. The letter cites the fact that there have only been two women on the Board: Rep. Corrine "Lindy" Boggs (1977-1978) and Anne Armstrong (1978-).
