Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records that document planning, development and production activities for the exhibitions "On Time" and "Robots on the Road: Stanley," as well as the Halls of Timekeeping and Light Machinery at the National Museum of American History, and when the museum was known as the Museum of History and Technology. Earlier records date back to when the Division of Work and Industry was known as the Division of Mechanical and Civil Engineering, the Division of Mechanisms, and the Division of the History of Technology. Staff represented in these records include curators Edwin A. Battison and Carlene E. Stephens. The exhibition "On Time" examined the ways Americans measured, used, and thought of time over the last 300 years, beginning with biological rhythms and environmental clues to our current reliance on clocks and watches. "Robots on the Road: Stanley," which was added to the exhibition "Science in American Life" in 2008, featured a robot car named "Stanley" that offered a glimpse into the future of smart cars.

Materials include correspondence; agreements; budget summaries; scripts; floor plans and drawings; visitor comments; a press kit; brochures; object lists; photographs; and ephemera. Some materials are in electronic format.
Oversize:
This collection contains oversize material.
