not scroll properly.
The "Ai Weiwei: According to What?" Tumblr blog is dedicated to the artist, his work, and the exhibition of the same name at HMSG. Due to technical issues, some content
may be missing and the crawled page may not scroll properly.

This accession consists of records documenting staff exhibition planning, development, and production of photographic history collections, as well as works by renown
contemporary American photographers, at the National Museum of American History (NMAH) and the Arts and Industries Building. Earlier records date back to when the photographic

Graphic Arts at NMAH, which, prior to 1980, was known as the National Museum of History and Technology and the Museum of History and Technology, respectively. Some records
predate the creation of NMAH when the Section of Photography was in the United States National Museum. Also documented in these records is the traveling exhibition The
Art of Animation, created by Walt Disney and his staff of artists, which traced the history of motion in pictures and was shown at the National Museum of Natural History.

some content may be missing and some features may not function as expected. Materials are in electronic format.
This accession consists of program files and docent files related to summer intern programs, docent training, and education programs and lectures sponsored throughout

The National Museum Act (NMA) of 1966 affirmed the Smithsonian Institution's traditional role of assisting other museums and authorized the Institution to strengthen
its activities of service to them. Funds appropriated to the Smithsonian for the implementation of the National Museum Act were made available primarily by grants and contracts
to museums of all disciplines, non-profit museum-related organizations and associations, academic institutions, and individuals employed or sponsored by eligible organizations,
after review by the National Museum Act Advisory Council. The membership of the Advisory Council encompassed the principal museum disciplines of art, science, and history
and was broadly representative of the various regions of the United States.
Under the direction of the Secretary, the Director of the United States National Museum (USNM) continued to carry out the directives of the National Museum Act of 1966.
The Office of Special Museum Programs was created in 1967, and Frank A. Taylor was named Director General of Museums. From 1968 until his retirement in January 1971, Taylor
served as Director General of Museums and Director, USNM. In August 1972, Paul Perrot became Assistant Secretary for Museum Programs (Director, USNM). The Assistant Secretary
for Museum Programs assumed essentially the same duties and responsibilities performed by the Director General of Museums. Perrot remained in this position until his retirement
in February 1984. In 1985, William N. Richards, Jr., assumed the position of Acting Assistant Secretary for Museum Programs. The Act remained unfunded from 1966 until FY 1972
when it received a first appropriation of $600,000. The program was abolished in 1986.
These records consist of approved grant applications, letters of award, final reports from recipients, published materials, photographs, slides, researcher's files, project
proposals, progress reports, financial statements, administrative files, correspondence, budget material, and memoranda.
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.
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.
