It is altogether fitting that in this commemorative conference, we celebrate the one application of holography that would have pleased Dennis Gabor the most, its contribution to culture and education. Among the many uses of holography, the most frequently lauded are display, interferometry, HOE, and a myriad of other technical applications. Seldom mentioned is its important contribution to culture and education, the theme of this conference. Herein we wish to argue this case, and detail the steps we have taken to implement it to a broad spectrum of the U. S. public over the last twenty years. With the consolidated effort of colleagues around the world, we expect the subject of holography to become an integral part of basic education, starting from elementary school.
