Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records documenting the history, administration, and activities of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Library and its first librarian, Anna Brooke, who retired in 2016. The Library was established in approximately 1969 in New York City before moving to Washington, D.C., and ultimately into the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden building which opened to the public in 1974. The library was administered by the museum until approximately 2000 when it became part of the existing Smithsonian Institution Libraries system (renamed Smithsonian Libraries in 2014). Subjects covered in this accession include the establishment of the library, collection management, the integration into the Smithsonian Institution Libraries system, relations with the Hirshhorn family, and outreach activities. Materials include correspondence, memoranda, reports, collection documentation, procedural documents, proposals, lecture notes, presentations, images, project planning files, floor plans, and related materials. Some materials are in electronic format.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of papers of Joseph H. Hirshhorn. Joseph Hirshhorn was born in Latvia in 1899 and immigrated to the United States in 1905 with his mother and siblings. At twelve, Mr. Hirshhorn left school to sell newspapers and by fourteen he was working in the firm that would later become the American Stock Exchange. At seventeen, Mr. Hirshhorn established himself as a broker, and later invested in Canadian mining in the 1930s. This led to his eventual ownership of multiple uranium mines. Along with working as a businessman, Mr. Hirshhorn was an avid art collector and donated large sums of money to support the arts. In 1966 it was announced that he would donate his art collection to the United States, which would be housed in what would become the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (HMSG).

This collection is comprised of Hirshhorn family photographs, correspondence, Mr. Hirshhorn's immigration documents, some news articles pertaining to Mr. Hirshhorn's uranium business, photographs of Mr. Hirshhorn with various artists, documents regarding the HMSG, photographs from Mr. Hirshhorn's funeral, awards from the mining industry, and related materials. The items in this collection were donated by Mrs. Olga Hirshhorn, Mr. Hirshhorn's fourth and final wife, as well as his children Gene LePere, Naomi Hirshhorn Caryl (also known as Naomi Caryl Hirshhorn), and Gordon Hirshhorn.
