The News/Information Office has gone through several name changes since early 1960, although its primary public affairs responsibilities remained largely the same until its segmentation in 1994. The Information Office & Exhibit Center, Media Relations, Communications, and Graphic Services are now individually responsible for different aspects of the original office’s variety of duties.
