Scope and Contents:
United Nations Economic and Social Council (UNESCO Committee for a History of the Scientific and Cultural Development of Mankind) was constituted in 1952 under the auspices of UNESCO. The task of the Commission was the preparation of a history of the scientific and cultural development of mankind. Work on this history began in 1952.

Historians of international repute were selected to write six volumes. In 1953 the Commission published a quarterly trilingual periodical, the Journal of World History. After 1957, preliminary texts were available and scholars in every member state of UNESCO were asked to read manuscripts and make suggestions for revision. The administrative work was delegated to a Secretariat with headquarters in Paris. A list of members of the Commission, author-editors, and the editorial secretary of the Journal of World History is in Folder 2.

Dr. Melvin Kranzberg's 1963 contract with the Commission was to rewrite or make suggestions of Part II, Chapters I to VIII of Volume V. Letters relating to this contract and the contract are included along with his comments and related footnotes, and Volume V, Part II, Technical Developments, Chapters VII and VIII, 1959, by Charles Moraze. 15

Date:
1972-1986, with related records from 1879-1899 and 1965-1976
Introduction:
This finding aid was digitized with funds generously provided by the Smithsonian Institution Women's Committee.
Descriptive Entry:
This record unit documents the work of the assistant secretary for Museum Programs. The office directed the operations of the Conservation Analytical Laboratory, Office of Exhibits Central, Office of the Registrar, the Smithsonian Institution Archives, Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, and the Institution's functions under the National Museum Act of 1966 until its repeal in 1983. In addition, the office served as liaison with various regional, national, and international museum organizations.

Records document planning and equipping the Museum Support Center, the major facility constructed in suburban Maryland to care for the national collections, and occupied in 1983; administration of the Arts and Industries Building; exhibitions at the Evans Gallery of the National Museum of Natural History; Institute of Museum Services; and work with the American Association of Museums, International Council of Museums (ICOM), the International Centre for Conservation in Rome, the International Center Committee of the Advisory Committee for Historic Preservation, and the United Nations Economic and Social Council. The records of William N. Richards, Jr., as special assistant to the assistant secretary for Museum Programs, 1972-1983, and as acting assistant secretary for Museum Programs, 1983-1985, are included, as are some records dealing with Paul Perrot's work in the museum field prior to his tenure at the Smithsonian.

This collection also includes vintage photographs of the Arts and Industries Building, circa1879-1899, when galleries were built.
Historical Note:
In 1972 Paul N. Perrot became assistant secretary for Museum Programs, assuming the duties formerly discharged by the director general of Museums. For an administrative history of the earlier office, see record unit 190. In 1983 Perrot was succeeded by William N. Richards, Jr., acting assistant secretary for Museum Programs. In 1986 the office was merged into a new office, the assistant secretary for Museums, held by Thomas L. Freudenheim.
