Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records documenting the administration of the Golden Lion Tamarin Conservation Program (GLTCP). Originally administered entirely by the National Zoological Park (NZP), Department of Zoological Research, the GLTCP focused on the conservation of the golden lion tamarin in its natural habitat and was responsible for the release of captive-born golden lion tamarins into the Reserva Biológica de Poço das Antas (Brazil). In 1992, overall administration of the program was transferred to the Brazilian non-governmental organization, Associação Mico-Leão-Dourado. The Department of Zoological Research continued to administer NZP's involvement in reintroduction, tracking, and conservation education. Topics documented in this accession include fund raising, budget, conservation training, studbook administration, policies, publicity, research publication, evaluation of calling patterns, observation of released golden lion tamarins, reintroduction logistics, and involvement with international conservation organizations and committees.

Materials include correspondence, memoranda, reports, meeting materials, clippings, newsletters, observations, data evaluations, policies, procedures, permits, manuscripts, filming requests, presentations, newsletters, brochures, pamphlets, posters, images, maps, audio recordings, notes, and related materials. Some materials are in electronic format. Some materials were created while the unit was known as the Office of Animal Management (through 1979), the Office of Animal Programs (1979-1984), or the Department of Zoological Research and Education (1984-1985).

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.
