Abstract

Corvallis Public Library officials are debating whether to let local, Richard Masker, display materials that question whether the Holocaust occurred. Masker says that librarian Kay Salmon gave him permission to display the materials during May; however the staff said later that they needed more time to consider the request. The library plans to contact the ALA, other Oregon libraries, and the city attorney for advice. Masker said that he plans to be at the library on May 1 to set up his display. He said that the California-based Institute for Historical Review is a legit organization. Masker said that if you are going to have a display case open to everybody then you can’t discriminate as to who uses it.
