Treadway Suggests Making
Library of Congress Into
His Memorial.
A three-point program which he
believes will properly “memorialize”
Thomas Jefferson, whose personal
library was the nucleus for the present
Library of Congress, is proposed in a
bill introduced today by Representa
tive Treadway, Republican, of Massa
chusetts, a member of the House
Library Committee, who balked the
plans to have a $3,000,000 Jefferson
Memorial constructed on the Tidal
Basin site.
The measure provides (1) desig
nating the Library of Congress as the
“Thomas Jefferson Memorial Library,”
(2) eliminating the present steps and
Fountain of Neptune and replacing
them with a memorial entrance which
will contain a statue of Jefferson “in
character” at a cost of $25,000, and
(3) placing what is left of the original
Jefferson Library in a specially pre
pared alcove or compartment, where
it can be seen by the public instead of
being hidden away behind locked
Representative Treadway, who last
year led the forces opposed to the
plan of the Jefferson Memorial Com
mission to erect the authorized Jeffer
son Memorial on the Tidal Basin site,
believes his three-point program will
not only establish in the National
Capital an adequate memorial to the
third President, but with a saving
of $2,965,000 to taxpayers—and, he
emphasized, without in any way de
tracting from the honor due to Jeffer
Because of Jefferson's connection
with the establishment of the Library
of Congress, Mr. Treadway feels the
designation of the library as a me
morial to him would be more appropri
ate than the erection of a marble
temple, "which would be In direct
contrast to Jefferson's characteristic
simplicity,” he said.
There remain in the Library of
Congress more than 2,000 of the books
which constituted Jefferson's library—
and to which the public now does not
have access.
