The Blaisdell Memorial Project is now formally the Neal S. Blaisdell Center War Memorial Project.
This is for several reasons
- For a short time in 1976, NBC was named the Neal S. Blaisdell Memorial Center. We don’t want to cause confusion or imply that we want to change its name….its correct name today is Neal S. Blasidell Center.
- We want to emphasize that the Center itself is a war memorial. We aren’t trying to memorialize a person.
That said, the shorter “Blaisdell Memorial Project” may stick around for simplicity sake.
Regardless of what we call ourselves, our goal is the same…restoration of the NBC’s war memorial status and preservation of its history.
