Albany, NY---Award winning stage, television and film actor Richard
Dreyfuss will be honored by the New York State Archives Partnership
Trust, Tuesday, September 28th at 7:30 p.m. at the Egg, Center for the
Performing Arts in Albany.  The hour-and-a-half long program will
feature a probing conversation between Dreyfuss and nationally prominent
Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer on Dreyfuss’ commitment to promoting the
teaching of civics in classrooms nationwide.

At the conclusion of the event, Dreyfuss will be presented with the
2010 Empire State Archives and History Award.  This award was created by
the Archives Partnership Trust in 2005 to recognize prominent national
figures for their contributions to our society’s understanding and use
of history.  Previous winners include C-SPAN founder and CEO Brian Lamb;
historians Michael Beschloss, Doris Kearns Goodwin, and Henry Louis
Gates, Jr., and actor Sam Waterston who, like Dreyfuss, used his
national celebrity to promote greater appreciation of history.

Tickets for the event are $10 and are available from The Egg Box Office
by calling (518) 473-1845 or online at http://www.theegg.org/. 
Information on a special pre-event reception honoring Mr. Dreyfuss is
available by calling (518) 474-1228 or by going online to
http://www.nysarchivestrust.org/aptindex.shtml .  

The Archives Partnership Trust is a public benefit corporation and a
501(c)(3) non-profit organization that funds creative projects -- beyond
what tax dollars can pay for -- to enhance the use of New York's State
Archives.  The Trust funds educational programs, preservation projects,
and research.  The Trust fosters business relationships, secures private
funding for endowment and projects, and makes the public and special
constituents more aware of New York's rich heritage.  

All proceeds from this event will go to support programs at the New
York State Archives and the Archives Partnership Trust.
