Introduction:
This finding aid was digitized with funds generously provided by the Smithsonian Institution Women's Committee.
Descriptive Entry:
The majority of these records document the research and administrative activities of John F. Eisenberg as Assistant Director for Animal Programs, and Dale L. Marcellini and Devra G. Kleiman as Acting Assistant Directors for the Office. Included are general correspondence and subject files, budgets, personnel actions, research proposals and reports, and grant requests; information on American and foreign zoos, conferences and research trips, and NZP and Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ); and administrative correspondence and memoranda from various NZP and Smithsonian offices. These records also include files concerning the acquisition, exchange, breeding, and exhibition of animal collections at NZP and other zoos. Staff participation in American Association of Zoological Parks and Aquariums meetings and committees is also documented in these records. This record unit also contains files created by Jaren G. Horsley as Executive Assistant to the Office of Animal Programs.

A small amount of material in the record unit dates from before the 1979 establishment of OAP. These records are from either OAP's predecessor, the Office of Animal Management, or are from Eisenberg's earlier position as Resident Scientist in the Department of Scientific Research at NZP. Some of Eisenberg's work on the Smithsonian-Venezuela Research Project is documented in these records. For additional material pertaining to Eisenberg's earlier work at NZP, see the John F. Eisenberg Papers, record unit 7411.
Historical Note:
The Office of Animal Programs (OAP) was established in 1979, replacing the Office of Animal Management at the National Zoological Park (NZP). John F. Eisenberg was named Assistant Director for Animal Programs, responsible for all animal and education programs at NZP. Eisenberg resigned in 1982, and Dale L. Marcellini became Acting Assistant Director for Animal Programs. Devra G. Kleiman assumed Marcellini's position in 1983. In 1984 Kleiman's title was changed to Assistant Director for Zoological Research and Educational Activities. Her title was changed again in 1985 to Assistant Director for Research.

This accession consists of the National Zoological Park's (NZP) Office of Education (OE) records. These records consist of OE's general administrative files, files concerning the activities of OE's Chief Judith White, and files that concern the development of OE's educational programs. The Office of Education is no longer extant. Its functions have either been dissolved, absorbed into the office of the NZP's Associate Director for Interpretive Programs, or continued by the Education Department of the Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ). Judith White was instrumental in developing many of the National Zoo's educational programs, as well as serving as the President of the International Association of Zoo Educators (IZE) and as Chair of the Council of Museum Education Directors. There are several folders that contain correspondence, memoranda, and drafts that outline her involvement with IZE. The general administrative files of OE contain budgetary information, correspondence, annual reports, long-range planning, and a file of memoranda that outline the Office's history. A major portion of the records concern the educational programs developed by OE and Judith White. Many of the programs such as: HerpLab, BirdLab, ZooLab, and ZooAnimals were animal related educational programs directed toward Kindergarten through 6th grade audiences, but there were programs for High School students and teacher workshops. The files also contain a section devoted to the OE's programs with the District of Columbia Public Schools.
