Alphabetical Series
Summary:
Includes letters and memoranda. There are also a few announcements, administrative forms, research proposals, and miscellaneous printed and processed items.
The file is a miscellany with but little focus. It includes material having to do with research proposals, exhibits, personnel, acquisitions, property, services, conservation, organization of the department, interns, material in the collections, and so forth. Much of it concerns relations with organizations and persons outside the Smithsonian. There is but little material on any one subject.
