Biographical / Historical:
Mack Gordon was a prolific and successful songwriter, lyricist, and composer who composed songs for stage and screen. Born Morris Gitler (he legally changed his name to Mack Gordon in later life) in Poland on June 21, 1904, his family immigrated to the United States in 1908 and settled in New York. His early career was as a performer in vaudeville and minstrel shows, but by the early 1930s he had formed a songwriting partnership with pianist Harry Revel. Gordon wrote for the Broadway stage and eventually made his way to Hollywood where he worked at a number of different motion picture studios.

In addition to Revel, Gordon worked with such well-known composers as Harry Warren, with whom he won his only Academy Award for Best Song for "You'll Never Know" from Hello Frisco Hello, and Josef Myrow, to name just three. Some of his more famous songs are "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "At Last," and "Did You Ever See a Dream Walking?". He was nominated for the Academy Award nine times and became a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. He died on February 28, 1959 in New York City (some biographies have his date of death as March 1), and is entombed at the Corridor of Immortality at the Home of Peace Memorial Park, Los Angeles, California.

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.

Summary:
A collection of motion picture publicity stills collected by Herbert O. Carleton (1887-1962), cameraman during the Silent Era of filmmaking.
Scope and Contents:
The Carleton Collection is a series of 461 feature film still photographs taken during the years 1912-1919. The stills are arranged alphabetically according to film titles. Most of the stills are in excellent condition, although some are torn or cracked at the edges. Only two of the films (The Awakening of Helena Richie and Birth of a Race) from which the stills were taken appear to exist. The stills are probably most notable for the wide array of early screen and stage actors from the period, including Lionel and Ethel Barrymore, Francis X. Bushman and Beverly Bayne, and a very young Frank Morgan.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged chronologically and by title.
Biographical / Historical:
Herbert Oswald Carleton was born in Rochester, N.Y. In his early life he worked as a mechanic and small time inventor, then worked as a motion picture projectionist before getting involved in camera work. Not a cinematographer in the modern sense, Carleton worked primarily with one director and shot only what the director asked for. The height of his output was 1915, when he photographed a number of Francis X. Bushman films. His career tapered off quickly after the release of Birth of a Race, the most expensive, but poorly made film of the silent period. Carleton later turned up doing short films and feature length documentaries in the 30's, before disappearing from the film scene.
Provenance:
Apparently these stills from H. O. Carleton's films were passed on to Herbert W. Carleton at the former's death. They were donated to the Archives Center by Herbert W. Carleton on October 9, 1992.
