Descriptive Entry:
This record unit consists of files documenting the operation of the Smithsonian Office of Ecology (SOE), 1965-1970, and its successor, the Ecology Program of the Office of Environmental Sciences (OES), 1970-1973. The records were created primarily by administrators Buechner, 1965-1968; Wallen, 1969; and Jenkins, 1970-1973. They include organizational files, 1965-1973; administrative records, 1965-1973, including material concerning the development of the Chesapeake Bay Center for Field Biology (after 1970, the Chesapeake Bay Center for Environmental Studies) and the Smithsonian-Peace Corps Environmental Program; project files, 1965-1973, including records documenting projects conducted as part of the International Program in Ecology; and files of Lee Merriam Talbot, 1965-1971.
Historical Note:
The history of the Ecology Program of the Office of Environmental Sciences can be traced to July 1, 1965, when the Smithsonian Office of Ecology (SOE) was created to assist in expanding the research opportunities of Smithsonian scientists and to aid in the coordination of ecological activities with other government agencies. From its creation until 1966, the SOE was an administrative unit of the National Museum of Natural History. In 1966, administrative responsibility for the SOE was transferred to the Assistant Secretary for Science. The Smithsonian's environmental sciences programs were reorganized under the Office of Environmental Sciences (OES) in 1970. At that time, the SOE became the Ecology Program of the newly created OES. In 1973, OES was merged with the Office of International Activities to form the Office of International and Environmental Programs (OIEP). The Ecology Program came under the administrative control of OIEP. The Ecology Program was abolished in 1974.

Administrators of the Ecology Program of OES and its predecessor the SOE included Helmut K. Buechner, assistant director for ecology, 1965-1966, head, 1966-1968 (he also served as senior scientist, 1968-1971); Irvin Eugene Wallen, acting head, 1969; and Dale W. Jenkins, director, 1970-1973. Other staff included Lee Merriam Talbot, research biologist, 1965-1966, field representative, Ecology and Conservation, 1966-1967, deputy head and international field representative, 1968, resident ecologist, 1969-1971, and deputy director, 1972-1973; and Francis Raymond Fosberg, special assistant for tropical biology, 1965-1966.

Programs and bureaus under the administration of the Ecology Program of OES and its predecessor the SOE included the Chesapeake Bay Center for Field Biology (after 1970 the Chesapeake Bay Center for Environmental Studies), 1965-1969; the Center for Natural Areas, 1972-1974; and the Peace Corps Environmental Program, 1972-1974.

Descriptive Entry:
This collection is comprised of motion picture, video, and audio recordings of three productions regarding issues related to biodiversity, biotic communities, and the study of these systems. "To Coexist: Diversity and Development" was produced for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The 30-minute program depicts how development professionals can take biological diversity into account when planning their projects. "Diversity Endangered" is a 10-minute video production demonstrating the interrelatedness of living organisms and the part that man plays in disturbing or preserving the crucial balance. "National Teleconference on BioDiversity," held September 24, 1986, was Smithsonian's first live teleconference produced for the Directorate of International Activities. The final event of the four-day National Forum on BioDiversity was cosponsored by the National Academy of Sciences and the Institution. This 2-hour program was telecast via satellite to more than a hundred downlink sites on university campuses nationwide.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of three websites and four blogs maintained by the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC) as they existed on January 2, 2014.

The primary SERC website includes information about SERC's mission, facilities, research, and school and public programs. It also includes press releases.

The "Shorelines: Life and Science at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center" blog details the discoveries of SERC's environmental scientists, the weird creatures they have encountered, and the strange but true science of the coasts. The first post to the blog was in October 2009.

The "SERC Home School" blog is for students enrolled in SERC's home school classes and their parents. It includes materials for classes as well as updates and other information. The first post was in March 2011.

The "Ecosystems on the Edge" website provides information about ecosystems that are literally and figuratively on the edge as well as information on how to protect them. Due to technical issues, video content was not captured as part of this accession.

The "Estuary Chesapeake" blog is an exchange between teachers, parents, SERC staff, and students related to field trips for the Estuary Chesapeake program. The program allows students to study estuarine ecology on the Rhode River and connect environmental issues of the watershed to human impacts. Although on a blog platform, it is organized more like a traditional website than a blog.

The "SERC Bio Block Course" blog is a resource hub for a marine biology course offered by SERC. This accession does not include password-protected content, the majority of the content on the blog.

The "Global Tree Banding Project" website documents the Smithsonian Institution's Global Tree Banding Project which originated within SERC but is now part of a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution, TakingITGlobal, and Microsoft Partners in Learning. The project allows students around the globe to monitor the rate at which their local trees grow and learn how that rate corresponds to Smithsonian Institution research as well as compare their work to other students world-wide. The website includes information about the project and provides instructions and resources. This accession does not include password-protected content.

Materials are in electronic format.

Descriptive Entry:
These records are the official minutes of the Board. They are compiled at the direction of the Secretary of the Smithsonian, who is also secretary to the Board, after approval by the Regents' Executive Committee and by the Regents themselves. The minutes are edited, not a verbatim account of proceedings. For reasons unknown, there are no manuscript minutes for the period from 1857 through 1890; and researchers must rely on printed minutes published in the Annual Report of the Smithsonian Institution instead. Minutes are transferred regularly from the Secretary's Office to the Archives. Minutes less than 15 years old are closed to researchers. Indexes exist for the period from 1907 to 1946 and can be useful.
Historical Note:
The Smithsonian Institution was created by authority of an Act of Congress approved August 10, 1846. The Act entrusted direction of the Smithsonian to a body called the Establishment, composed of the President; the Vice President; the Chief Justice of the United States; the secretaries of State, War, Navy, Interior, and Agriculture; the Attorney General; and the Postmaster General. In fact, however, the Establishment last met in 1877, and control of the Smithsonian has always been exercised by its Board of Regents. The membership of the Regents consists of the Vice President and the Chief Justice of the United States; three members each of the Senate and House of Representatives; two citizens of the District of Columbia; and seven citizens of the several states, no two from the same state. (Prior to 1970 the category of Citizen Regents not residents of Washington consisted of four members). By custom the Chief Justice is Chancellor. The office was at first held by the Vice President. However, when Millard Fillmore succeeded to the presidency on the death of Zachary Taylor in 1851, Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney was chosen in his stead. The office has always been filled by the Chief Justice since that time.

The Regents of the Smithsonian have included distinguished Americans from many walks of life. Ex officio members (Vice President) have been: Spiro T. Agnew, Chester A. Arthur, Allen W. Barkley, John C. Breckenridge, George Bush, Schuyler Colfax, Calvin Coolidge, Charles Curtis, George M. Dallas, Charles G. Dawes, Charles W. Fairbanks, Millard Fillmore, Gerald R. Ford, John N.
