He traveled extensively to places such as Czech Republic, Japan, Italy, Russia, Slovakia, and Ukraine. He visited glass factories and studios, usually forming professional relationships and friendships with other glass artists.

Biographical / Historical:
Robert Doty (1933-1992) was a museum curator and director from Rochester, New York.

Doty received a B.A. from Harvard University in 1956 and an M.A. from the University of Rochester in 1961, where he studied the history of photography. In Rochester, he also worked at the George Eastman House, International Museum of Photography, organizing exhibitions of the work of Lewis Hine (1957), the Photo-Secession (1960) and Bill Brandt (1962). Other positions Doty held include research assistant at the Victoria and Albert Museum, (1961-1962); assistant to the director at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, (1963-1964); and assistant to the director at the Yale University Art Gallery, (1964-1965.

Doty became associate curator of the Whitney Museum in 1966, and curator in 1970, and organized several high-profile exhibitions. These included the Whitney's first historical survey of American photography in 1974 and Contemporary Black Artists in America (1971), which generated controversy when 15 of the 75 artists withdrew to protest that Black specialists had not been consulted about selections for the exhibition. Doty left the Whitney in 1974 to become director of the Akron Art Institute until 1977. From 1977 until his retirement in 1987 Doty was director of the Currier Gallery of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire. He subsequently worked part time as the acting director of the New England College Gallery in Henniker, New Hampshire.

During his time at the Akron Art Institute and the Currier Gallery Doty dedicated significant energy and interest towards American folk art, organizing respective exhibitions at both museums: American Folk Art in Ohio Collections (1976) and By Good Hands: New Hampshire Folk Art(1989). His papers reflect this extensive research and interest. Over the course of his career Doty maintained several enduring relationships with other prominent curators and directors such as Grace M. Mayer and Beaumont Newhall. Doty also dedicated his time to several consulting projects with institutions and corporations including the Empire State building's art commission, the National Broadcasting Company (NBC), the National Endowment for the Arts, and the XEROX Corporation, and wrote and edited several exhibition essays, catalogs, and books, including books on the Photo-Secession, American photography, and the artists Will Barnet and Lewis Hine.

Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1971-2007, undated
Scope and Contents:
This series, dated 1971-2007 and undated, consists of materials relating to Ortner's professional activities. These include notes, correspondence, drafts, newsclippings, photographs, and computer disks.

Subseries 6.1, Lectures, conferences, symposia, 1975-1986 and undated, includes Ortner's notes and research materials for these lectures or talks at conferences. Ortner's lecture addressing science and culture in modern society was for the Smithsonian Resident Associate Program in 1984. The research materials that accompany Ortner's notes for his lecture on science and religion follow the controversy and lawsuit over the National Museum of Natural History's exhibit on evolution, which opened in 1979. The materials from the Smithsonian's Seventh International Symposium, How Humans Adapt: A Biocultural Odyssey include files from Ortner's participation in the 1981 symposium. Drafts, book reviews, and public relations materials for the book that accompanied the symposium, which Ortner edited, are also included.

Subseries 6.2, Forensic work, 2002, 2007, includes correspondence, notes, photographs, CD-Roms, and floppy discs relating to forensic cases from outside agencies on which Ortner was asked to collaborate. In these cases Ortner used remains to determine cause of death, verify identity, or provide other information for the case.

Subseries 6.3 Other professional activities, 1971-2005, includes NMNH Research Associate Rebecca Ferrell's NIH grant proposal for a project titled "The Biology of Striae of Retzius in Human Tooth Enamel" that Ortner supervised in 2005; case reports Ortner organized and edited for the Paleopathology Newsletter; workshops he organized for the annual meetings of the Paleopathology Association from 1997-2002; and Ortner's short-courses in paleopathology. The material from the short-courses in paleopathology includes planning and correspondence from when they were offered as a lecture series at the Smithsonian Institution with Walter G. J. Putschar during the years 1971-1974 and 1985. The file also includes short-courses at the University of Bradford during the years 1988, 1994, 1998, 2001, 2003, 2005.

Subseries 6.4 Photographs, 1960s-2000s, includes slides, negatives, and prints depicting professional events, such as conferences and awards ceremonies; Ortner at work in his office or lab with colleagues and interns; and a few prints of unidentified specimens. Notable people included in these images are Thomas Dale Stewart and John Lawrence Angel. Also included are negatives of photographic portraits of children, probably Ortner's.

This series is arranged in 4 subseries: 6.1 Lectures, conferences, symposia, 1975-1986, undated; 6.2 Forensic work, 2002, 2007; 6.3 Other professional activities, 1971-2005; 6.4 Photographs, 1960s-2000s.

Summary:
Walter C. Pierce (1946-1991) was a civic leader and founder of the Ontario Lakers Youth Organization in Washington, DC. The collection includes correspondence, certificates, flyers, proposals, newspaper clippings, political posters, city council resolutions, basketball tournament programs, and other items documenting Pierce's activism and activities of the Ontario Lakers.
Biographical / Historical:
The Ontario Lakers Youth organization was founded in 1964 by Walter C. Pierce (1946-1991) and his brother Ronald, in the Adams Morgan section of Washington, DC. Walter created the organization to provide the local youth with recreation and jobs. Youths from Adams Morgan joined the club's football, baseball, and basketball teams and competed against other teams throughout the city. The strength of their programs led to the creation of the Ghetto Invitational, a citywide basketball tournament. In addition to sports, members of the Ontario Lakers created a community garden, hosted community dances, participated in activities ranging from kung fu to tie-dye, took field trips around the region, and performed yard work and sold Christmas trees to raise fund for their activities.

Much of the Ontario Lakers programming took place at the Community Park West. This park was once a lot owned by a developer who planned to erect a luxury apartment building on the site. The land's history as a burial ground prevented initial building construction; in the interim, Pierce organized neighborhood youth to clear the lot and transform the space into a much-needed community park. This instigated a multi-year legal battle with developers, historic groups, and Congress before the lot was ultimately designated a public park in 1978.

Mr. Pierce was involved in numerous civic activities and served as the chairman of the Adams Morgan Organization (AMO). Prior to his untimely death in 1991; Walter C. Pierce was recognized by several organizations, including the Washington, D.C. City Council, for his dedicated service to the community. After his death, the large and heavily used green space that he helped to turn into a public park was renamed Walter Pierce Park, in his honor.
