COLONIAL RECORDS s.o.s. The Caribbean Research Foundation seeks participants during July and August to help save priceless historical documents on Grand Turk Island before they are lost forever. Retirees, students, and others who want adventure and the satisfaction of preserving an important history should write to James Neal, History Dept., Middle Tenn. St. Univ., Murfreesboro, TN 37132.
This and similar classified ads appeared in The Christian Science Monitor, The New York Review of Books, and numerous professional newsletters during the spring of 1983. Of the hundreds of persons who responded, twenty-four were selected to participate in an exotic but useful local records project in the West Indies.
