This accession consists of scripts for various "The World is Yours" radio shows broadcast by the National Broadcasting Company, Inc. radio network. A joint project
of the Smithsonian Institution, U.S. Department of the Interior Office of Education, and the Works Progress Administration, the half-hour programs aired once a week on topics
ranging from mammals to insects to geology to ethnology to art history to aeronautics, etc. The educational series featured the "Oldtimer" as the audience's guide to "the
wonders of that unique establishment, the Smithsonian Institution - dedicated to the increase and diffusion of knowledge." Scripts were prepared by Smithsonian staff and presentations
were done by out-of-work actors and musicians. The program, which began in June 1936, was suspended in May of 1942 because of the war effort. Materials include scripts, regulations
for using the scripts, and, in some cases, cast lists. Scripts are not available for all shows.
Also included is information about the 1942 transfer of 6 audio recordings related to the Chumash Indian language from the Smithsonian Institution, Bureau of American Ethnology
to the National Archives; 9 pages of Chumash to English translations, and "The Story of Candalaria, the Old Indian Basket-Maker."
Also included are data sheets and component data sheets for duplicate film in Record Group 106 of the National Archives and Records Administration. Data sheets are not
available for all of the film from this record group and some data sheets document copies that were not part of the transfer to the Smithsonian Institution Archives and are
assumed to no longer exist.
These records were transferred to the National Archives prior to the establishment of the Smithsonian Institution Archives, where they became part of Record Group 106.
On March 18, 2005, they were returned to the Smithsonian Institution and were added to the Archives collections.
