FRANKFORT, Ky.-- The Kentucky Historical Society is forming a new relationship with the Smithsonian Institution.

Historical Society officials say the affiliation will provide opportunities for innovative collaborations and will help secure the loan of Smithsonian artifacts and traveling exhibitions. The affiliation is to be announced on Saturday evening by Harold A. Closter, director of Smithsonian Affiliations.

That announcement will be part of the Historical Society's annual Boone Day celebration.
