The Smothers Brothers were a folksinging duo who toured and made occasional appearances on television variety shows during the 1960s. Starting in 1967, the brothers had their own show, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. The show often contained controversial content and often featured appearances by controversial guest performers. The show was cancelled in 1969 by the network, over conflicts regarding the network's rights to edit or censor the programs in advance. The brothers sued the network successfully but the show was not reinstated. They continued to make occasional television appearances, tour and record, retiring in 2010.

Also included in this collection are video and audio tapes that contain interviews, talks, radio broadcasts, and other orally and visually transmitted items. These materials have been transferred to the NMAI Media Archives. All photographs have been transferred to the NMAI Photo Archives.

Series 2, Correspondence (undated, 1982-1996),

Series 3, Biographical (undated, 1985-1996),

Series 4, Native American Church (1971-1993)
Biographical / Historical:
Reuben A. Snake, Jr. was born January 12, 1937 at Winnebago, Nebraska, the youngest child of Reuben Harold and Virginia Greyhair Snake. Reuben's mother divorced her husband and later remarried, but Reuben's early life was fraught with hardships, including a period of separation from his parents and siblings. When the family's financial situation improved, parents and children were able to reunite and eventually settled in Hastings, Minnesota.

Reuben entered Haskell Institute in Lawrence, Kansas, in 1950 but later dropped out due to problems with alcohol. He joined the Army in 1956, from which he was honorably discharged, and two years later he married Kathy McKee, with whom he raised four daughters and two sons. In 1965 he quit drinking.

Reuben was active in the American Indian Movement (AIM) in the 1970s and organized many demonstrations during his tenure as national chairman of that organization. After being elected chairman of the Winnebago tribe, Reuben reorganized the tribe, centralizing its administration and improving funding and accountability. Reuben was involved with educational issues as well, serving on education committees for the National Congress of American Indians and the National Tribal Chairman's Association. He worked both nationally and internationally to help make more widely known issues of Indian health, education, and religious freedom.

Reuben began to renew his spiritual and cultural ties with the Native American Church in the 1970s and eventually became a Roadman for the church. With the help of Senator Daniel Inouye from Hawaii he fought judicial battles to legalize the importation of peyote from Mexico for use in sacramental ceremonies. In 1990, when the United States Supreme Court ruled that the sacred use of peyote was not protected by the Constitution, Reuben became the official spokesperson for the Native American Church to educate the public about church philosophy and history. He organized the Native American Religious Freedom Project to lobby for national legislation what would amend and strengthen the American Indian Religious Freedom Act.

Reuben had suffered a major heart attack in 1986, and by the early 1990s, his health was deteriorating. He died on June 28, 1993. Reuben did not live to see the results of his hard work on behalf of Native American religious freedom, Amendments to the American Indian Religious Freedom Act, which President Clinton signed into law in October, 1994. These amendments protected the religious use of peyote by Indians.

Biographical / Historical:
Floyd Levin (1922 - 2007) was a Los Angeles textile manufacturer who turned his passion for jazz into a second, contemporaneous, career as an influential jazz journalist and historian. His numerous reviews, profiles, and articles were published in magazines such as Down Beat, Jazz Journal International, Metronome, and American Rag. He also authored Classic Jazz: A Personal View of the Music and the Musicians (University of California Press, 2000), which –like his articles – chronicled his first-hand encounters with countless jazz musicians. In 1949, he co-founded the Southern California Hot Jazz Society, the second-oldest jazz appreciation club in the country. Levin led the drive to create the Louis Armstrong Park and statue in New Orleans in the 1970s. During his career, he conducted scores of oral history interviews with jazz musicians, which he donated to NMAH and to Tulane University's jazz archive. He received several awards for his work, including the Leonard Feather Communicator Award, given annually by the Los Angeles Jazz Society. Levin died in 2007.

Chronological Files

Collection Creator:
Chernow, Burt  Search this
Extent:
2 Linear Feet (Boxes 8-9)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1986-1997
Scope and Contents:
Chronological files contain mostly photocopies and seem to have been compiled by Chernow to organize information in the process of writing the Christos' biography. Files are named by the year in the life of Christo and Jeanne-Claude that they document, and they typically contain a chronology of events compiled from the Christo's appointment books, partial copies of interview transcripts, excerpts of Chernow's draft typescripts of the biography, and copies of printed material relating to events from that year, both in the lives of Christo and Jeanne-Claude and world events generally. Copies of material pulled from other libraries and repositories is mixed with copies of material found elsewhere within the current collection throughout the series. When materials have been copied from other sources, the sources are often not cited. Certain sources have been copied with portions interspersed throughout this series, such as the PhD dissertation of Carline Bouihlet on Christo, entitled Christo : Dialectical Materialism and Artistic Consumerism, a manuscript with annotations in red pen that is not otherwise identified.

Among the chronological files are files for specific locations where the Christos lived or exhibited, files for the Christos' major art projects, and a single file for an individual, Peter Selz, found with the Running Fence file for 1976. The Peter Selz file is comprised entirely of photocopies made by Chernow from Selz's papers held at the Archives of American Art. Files bearing project names contain press coverage and documentation relating to the projects, such as engineering records, budgets, and travel schedules. These files are found with the date the project was executed. A file for Surrounded Islands (1983) contains the most primary documents of the project-related chronological files. Other notable documents in this series include Italian translations of reviews of Christo's 1963 exhibition in Milan and a photocopy of Christo's 1963 issue of the arts journal KWY.

A complete set of photocopies of this series, made by Ann Chernow for Wolfgang Volz to aid his writing of the biography's epilogue, was discarded during processing.
