Introduction:
This finding aid was digitized with funds generously provided by the Smithsonian Institution Women's Committee.
Descriptive Entry:
These records consist of notebooks created by the Registrar's Office to document the objects loaned to the Cooper-Hewitt Museum for exhibition. Documentation consists of color photographs or photocopies of photographs of objects showing methods of packing for shipment or damage to objects. Notebooks also contain condition reports, floor plans showing placement of objects in exhibitions, exhibition label facsimiles, lists of objects shown in exhibitions, and values of objects in different currencies. The first exhibition documented here is The Royal Pavilion at Brighton, which opened in March 1977, and the last is Robert Adam and Kedleston Hall, which opened in June 1987. Documentation of exhibits is by no means complete. Many of the notebooks correspond to exhibition files contained in Record Unit 541, and are linked to the files by loan number.

Date:
circa 1937-1992
Introduction:
This finding aid was digitized with funds generously provided by the Smithsonian Institution Women's Committee.
Descriptive Entry:
These records document the administrative and program activities of the Office of the Registrar from 1973 to 1992, with some files dating from 1959. Records consist of staff meeting notes, administrative memoranda, quarterly reports, and annual reports to the Smithsonian's central Office of the Registrar in response to Office Memorandum 808, "Collections Management Policy." Also included are reports and budgets for the Museum's acquisitions fund; memoranda and correspondence concerning the Smithsonian Institution Registrar's Council and its predecessors, the Registrarial Council of the Smithsonian Institution and the Council of Registrars, from its inception in January 1973 through 1987; and insurance registers, projections, and claims. The records also contain labels describing various objects on exhibition, circa 1937 to 1968; accession card corrections and changes from 1959 and undated; contracts from the 1960s; lists of income and object purchases; and the correspondence of Mary Blackwelder from 1970 to 1971.
Historical Note:
Soon after he was hired as assistant curator in 1933, Calvin Hathaway introduced a new system for accessioning and cataloging the collections of the Cooper Union Museum. By 1942 Hathaway had become associate curator, and his system was maintained by secretarial staff under the supervision of Mary A. Noon, assistant to the curator for collections. Noon became acting head of the Museum in 1945, and in 1947 Dorothea C. Shipley was appointed catalog supervisor. Paul Dreschler replaced her in 1951, and Mary Fonner Blackwelder was named to the post in 1956.

Shortly after the Museum was transferred to the Smithsonian Institution, Blackwelder assumed the position of registrar, where she remained until February 1975. Elizabeth Burnham was registrar from FY 1976 through FY 1978, and Albina De Meio served in that function from FY 1980 through FY 1981. Cordelia Rose was appointed registrar in FY 1982.

Date:
circa 1955-1988
Descriptive Entry:
Records include correspondence and memoranda with NMAH curators, government agencies, collections committee for NMAH, professional associations, and academicians; information pertaining to the Doubleday Lectures; staff appointments; accounting ledgers; congressional budget submission reports and hearing files; five year funding prospectus; federal and trust fund appropriation requests, allocations, and distribution summary logs; inventory lists; building management; lectures and financial contracts; operation reviews for NMAH; travel allotments and balance sheets; and purchase agreements.
Historical Note:
The Assistant Director for Administration is responsible for overseeing budget and financial planning, personnel, contracting, procurement, special exhibition projects, and building management of the National Museum of American History.

The activities of this office date back to 1958, when William E. Boyle was appointed Administrative Assistant in what was then called the National Museum of History and Technology (NMHT). Boyle became Administrative Officer for the Museum in 1963, retaining that post until 1965. In 1963, Virginia Beets joined Boyle as an Administrative Officer, and succeeded him as head of the office in 1966.

Robert G. Tillotson joined the staff in 1967 as Administrative Officer, with the same responsibilities as Beets. In December 1969, Tillotson became Assistant Director for Administration. Despite the difference in title, Beets continued in a similar capacity to that of Tillotson until she resigned her position in 1973 to become Museum Registrar. Tillotson chose Jean J. Middleton as his Administrative Officer in 1976. In 1979, Tillotson left the office to accept the position of Executive Director of the National Philatelic Collections, and Middleton resigned her post to join Tillotson as assistant.

Throughout 1980, the duties of the Assistant Director for Administration were temporarily handled by Luis del Rio, Executive Officer. During that year, NMHT had its name changed to the National Museum of American History (NMAH). In 1981, Ronald E. Becker was appointed Assistant Director for Administration. Becker selected Richard E. Nicastro to become his Assistant Administrator from 1983 to 1984, and, Administrative Officer in 1985. Elizabeth E. Greene replaced Nicastro as Administrative Officer in 1986, when Nicastro became Deputy Assistant Director for Exhibits, NMAH.

Outgoing Correspondence, 1882-1905

Type:
Archival materials
Note:
Outgoing Correspondence (1882-1905) includes receipts for specimens, first to Spencer F. Baird from Charles Valentine Riley and later from an assistant to the Museum's registrar; annual and monthly reports of the Division of Insects, including accession lists; correspondence from the Division regarding collection, distribution, and determination of specimens; and occasional extensive reports by curators regarding the status of the national collection. The outgoing correspondence series is mostly useful for documenting the growth of the Museum's insect collections, but it is also more generally useful for the history of entomology, especially in the correspondence of Riley, Leland Ossian Howard, and William Harris Ashmeade.

Date:
1846-1995
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.

Morton, Richard M. Nixon, Nelson A. Rockefeller, Theodore Roosevelt, James S. Sherman, Adlai E. Stevenson, Harry S. Truman, Henry A. Wallace, William A. Wheeler, Henry Wilson.

Ex officio members (Chief Justice) have been: Roger B. Taney, Salmon P. Chase, Nathan Clifford, Morrison R. Waite, Samuel F. Miller, Melville W. Fuller, Edward D. White, William Howard Taft, Charles Evans Hughes, Harlan F. Stone, Fred M. Vinson, Earl Warren, Warren E. Burger.
