Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of a photograph album and two scrapbooks compiled by Blanch Anderson Kitteredge, wife of Harold B. Anderson, and Lewis Harris Kitteredge. The photographs depict Alexander Winton; employees of the Winton Co. and their families; the Winton touring car; the Winton Bullet No. 2 (including being shipped in 1903 to Ireland for fourth Gordon Bennett Race, views of the car in Ireland, and during the race); other racing cars; family travels; steam yachts; homes; friends and relatives; and leisure activities. The scrapbooks contain programs, ribbons, news clippings, and other ephemera related to leisure activities and life of the Winton and Anderson families in Cleveland from the 1890s to the 1920s.
Biographical / Historical:
Alexander Winton was a builder and driver of early racing cars. His third racing car, called the "Bullet No. 2", was one of the first automobiles to use an 8-cylinder, in-line engine. Winton and Harold B. Anderson, chief engineer of Winton Motor Carriage Company, built this automobile for the fourth Gordon Bennett road race, held in Ireland in 1903. The car was forced out of the race due to mechanical problems. A good account of the automobile, which is in the Smithsonian's transportation collections, can be seen in Donald H. Berkebile and Smith Hempstone Oliver's book, The Smithsonian Collection of Automobiles and Motorcycles, City of Washington: Smithsonian Institution Press, 1968.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of audiovisual elements for the interactive video project that accompanied the exhibition "A Material World." The production incorporates video animation, puppetry, and on-location photography in two interactive videos, "Knowing Materials" and "Testing Materials." Among those featured in the production is racing driver Don Garlits whose dragster is on display. The exhibition, produced by the National Museum of American History (NMAH), Department of the History of Science and Technology, opened in April 1988. Using a broad sampling of objects from NMAH collections, it explores questions such as, "What is this object made of, why, and why does it matter?" It traces changes in the composition of artifacts over time and how the materials that are chosen affect the makeup and "feel" of our artificial environment. It is not clear when this material was transferred to the Archives. Materials include original 16mm camera rolls, Betacam transfers from film and 3/4" masters, original Betacam videotapes, 1/4" audiotape, U-matic videotapes, and 1" protection master videotapes.
Restrictions:
Restrictions pertaining to the use of these materials may apply (based on contracts/copyright). Access restrictions may also apply if viewing/listening copies are not currently available. Viewing/listening copies can be made for a fee. Contact reference staff for details.
