Speeches and Lectures, 1955-2001 and undated

 Series 6

This series consists of speeches, drafts of speeches, notes, outlines, speaking invitations and related correspondence, and reference materials that Murtagh used when writing his speeches. Also included in this series are speeches given by others in the field of historic preservation. The majority of the speeches in this series were given by Murtagh as a representative of the National Trust or at national and international conferences. Speeches given as part of a conference or workshop are located together with supporting materials, when present, in series VII: Conferences and Workshops. In cases where the presentation of the document is unclear, materials were treated as printed papers and placed in Series VIII: Reports and Papers.

The series is divided into two main parts: speeches by Murtagh and speeches by others. For those speeches given by Murtagh, the arrangement is alphabetical by speech title. When available, the venues and/or locations of the speech are also given. Functional titles were assigned to untitled speeches and are indicated by brackets. Speeches given by others are arranged alphabetically by last name. At the end of the series are other materials such as notes, outlines, and source materials. Audiotapes of speeches and lectures were removed and placed in Series XIII: Audiovisual Materials.
