Note:
This series includes materials on a few projects not relating to World War II. The National Resources Committee was organized to compile a report on federal research facilities. The papers here relate to a report made by the Smithsonian to include in the larger project. The National Youth Administration asked the Smithsonian for help in preparing instructional pamphlets on topics of interest to youth and in locating pictures. The Interdepartmental Committee on Cooperation with the American Republics, a cooperative effort among several government agencies, was designed to promote good relations with other North American countries when war broke out in Europe. The papers in this group deal with the translation of scientific publications into Spanish and Portuguese. In 1941 an exhibit was installed in the main hall of the Smithsonian Building illustrating the organization and research activities of the Institution. A full set of exhibit photographs are included in this series.
