The President today announced his intent to appoint Marvin F. "Bud" Moss to serve as a Member of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.

Mr. Marvin F. Moss, of Palmyra, Virginia, was first appointed to the National Historical Publications and Records Commission in November 1995. From January to July 1997, he served as Staff Director of the Special Committee to the U.S. Naval Academy Board of Visitors, which conducted a comprehensive study of the Academy. From 1977 to 1995, he served as Administrative Assistant to Senator Paul Sarbanes (D-MD). Prior to that, he worked as both State and Legislative Director for Congressman Goodloe Byron (D-MD) for six years. Mr. Moss has lectured on American government and politics at the Ball State University, Salisbury State University, and the U.S. Naval Academy.

Mr. Moss received a B.S. degree from the United States Military Academy, and a Masters degree in international relations from American University.

The National Historical Publications and Records Commission recommends works and collections which should be recorded at public expense. The Commission also encourages federal, state, local agencies and non-governmental institutions in collecting preserving, editing, and publishing papers of outstanding citizens of the United States. This may include documents important to the understanding and appreciation of the history of the country.
