In June 1938, the Rockefeller Foundation sponsored a conference in Rye, New York, on the "interpretation of the natural sciences for the general public." Watson
Davis, Director of Science Service, was one of the invited participants (transcripts of that conference are in Series 9, Box 382, Folders 3 and 4). After the conference, John
Marshall, Assistant Director for Humanities at the Rockefeller Foundation, arranged for Science Service to conduct a follow-up survey for $2000. This project ran from September
1938 to January 1939 and attempted to measure how science was then being presented to the public in newspapers, magazines, radio, film, and museum exhibits. The report (see
Series 9, Box 382, Folder 5) was delivered to the Rockefeller Foundation in February 1939 but never published; it was disseminated officially only within the Rockefeller Foundation
and to Science Service trustees.
Series 9 contains four boxes of material related to the survey: (a) copies of the original draft and final version of the report; (b) correspondence with the sponsor and
media contacts; (c) coding sheets and tabulations of the analyses of newspaper, magazine, book, and movie content; and (d) articles, reports, movie press books, postcards,
and other material consulted during the project.
