President Reagan's four children -- Maureen, Ron, Michael and Patricia Davis Grilley -- his brother Neil, actor Charlton Heston, evangelist Billy Graham, a gaggle of corporate titans and a handful of media moguls yesterday were named to the board of governors of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation.
The 102 governors, nominated by the trustees and approved by the president and Nancy Reagan, will advise the foundation, formed a year ago to raise funds for the design, construction and endowment of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, which will be on the campus of Stanford University, and the Center for Public Affairs, to be built elsewhere in the San Francisco Bay area.
Politicians named to the board of governors include Govs. George Deukmejian of California and Richard Thornburgh of Pennsylvania, Sens. Pete Wilson (R-Calif.), Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.) and Paul Laxalt (R-Nev.).
Among corporate chiefs are Roger Smith of General Motors, Robert O. Anderson of Atlantic Richfield, Thornton Bradshaw of RCA, Joseph Coors of the Adolph Coors Co., Thomas Jones of Northrop Corp., Drew Lewis of Warner Amex, J. Willard Marriott of the Marriott Corp., David Packard of Hewlett-Packard, Jay Pritzker of Pritzker & Pritzker, James Robinson of American Express, Rawleigh Warner of Mobil Corp. and Richard Wood of Eli Lilly.
Media leaders include Joe Allbritton of Allbritton Communications, Walter Annenberg of TV Guide, Malcolm Forbes of Forbes Inc. and George Grune of Reader's Digest.
Other well-known members include millionaire-activists Ross Perot, David Rockefeller and Clement Stone; former ambassador Clare Boothe Luce; former Democratic national chairman Robert Strauss and attorney Edward Bennett Williams.
Jane Weinberger, wife of Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger, was named; her husband was not.
The foundation's trustees are headed by Chairman W. Glenn Campbell, director of the Hoover Institution at Stanford; Vice Chairman Edwin Meese, the attorney general; and Treasurer William Clark, former secretary of the interior and presidential national security adviser.
'Concert That Counts'
The folks who telecast last July's Live Aid concerts hope to get backing from Nancy Reagan and Princess Diana as well as appearances from Madonna and four dozen other major rock acts in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., April 26 to fight drug abuse, the Los Angeles Times reported yesterday.
If all goes as planned, "The Concert That Counts," as it has been dubbed, will be telecast via satellite to more than 150 nations and will raise a lot of money for the Nancy Reagan Drug Abuse Fund and other nonprofit drug-awareness organizations. Bill Thompson, one of Pasadena's city directors, said the reason the concert has been shrouded in secrecy is that the project organizers, Hal Uplinger and Tony Verna of Global Media Ltd., wanted the first public announcement to be made by Mrs. Reagan and other celebrities.
A talent lineup sheet obtained by the newspaper lists Madonna, the Pointer Sisters, Aretha Franklin, Mr. Mister, the Beach Boys, Sheena Easton and George Michael of Wham! among 16 pop acts that have already confirmed they'll be there. Another 27, including Whitney Houston, the Dream Academy, Sting and Starship, are on the "expected" list. David Bowie, Diana Ross, Michael Jackson and Mick Jagger are listed under the "strong interest" column of the talent lineup sheet.
At present, the only roadblock appears to be the ofttimes militant homeowners who live near the Rose Bowl and who have a long history of opposing any rock concert -- even a wholesome one endorsed by the first lady. Several local homeowners are expected to oppose the concert, as they did Michael Jackson's 1984 Victory Tour. End Notes
