Scope and Contents:
Film footage shot by Barbara Johnson among the Jyapu subcaste of the Newars of Tawnany Tole, Thecho village in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal: September 4, mid morning and late afternoon; A group of boys antagonize a 5 year old boy. He makes an angry gesture, common among adults, with the back of his hand, but does not actually strike anyone. See filmmaker's camera log for CR46 for more background on the interaction with this boy. September 5 late afternoon, September 6 mid-morning, and September 13, early and late morning: A father sits in a doorway with his children; several boys play a hand slapping game, one boy holds a hand out as another boy pats it several times with the palms of both hands; some girls play jump rope as some boys play a pitching game with stones. Boys and girls often play separately. People gather around the water tap to wait for the water to be turned on. Mustard seed that has been drying in the sun is put in a sack. As their mother spreads mustard seed to dry on a mat two young children tie leaves, with holes cut in them for their eyes, on their faces with twine, imitating a masked dancer, a man masquerading as a witch figure, they had seen the evening before. An older woman uses a traditional kitchen utensil to cut a type of leaf stalk that will be eaten with the morning meal. A courtyard mother nurses her only child, a walking age little girl.

A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Accounting and Bookkeeping forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories.

An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana

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.
