Summary:
An artificial collection of posters on various subjects, at present organized according to donor and/or subject. Examples of contents include motion picture posters and propaganda posters.
Scope and Contents note:

Detailed cataloging information for many of these posters can be found following this finding aid. This collection is augmented periodically by new acquisitions.
The movie posters, all except two from the 1990s, represent a wide range of popular films, including both adult and children's films, live action and animated, and studio and independently made films.
Arrangement:
Collections divided into four series.

Series 1: Miscellaneous Posters, 1917-1990

Series 2: World War One Posters, 1917-1919

Series 3: Motion Pictures Posters, 1963-2016

Series 4: Soviet Propaganda Posters, 1959-1960
Biographical / Historical:
Motion pictures have been exhibited in the United States since debuting at the Columbian Exposition in 1893. The public=s love affair with Athe movies@ has never waned. Beginning with silent films with simple plots the motion picture industry has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry where the small simple film costs millions of dollars and a great portion of a motion picture budget is designated for advertising. Movie posters have been an integral marketing tool for the motion picture from its inception. Movie posters attempt to capture the essence of the film in one clear defining image and image that will hopefully remain in the consumers mind. Early movie posters boasted original artwork with bright colors and bold lettering. Beginning in the 1950s, movie posters began to use actual photographs from the movie itself as the primary artwork for the movie poster. In the latter 20th century almost all movie posters were photographic in nature. With the expansion of motion pictures into the home video market from the early 1980s onward, movie posters became not only a marketing tool for the movie theatre but for the video store as well.

Writings

Collection Creator:
Kent, Rockwell, 1882-1971  Search this
Extent:
Reels 5249-5252, 5741
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1906-1978, undated
Scope and Contents note:
Writings, art work, miscellaneous items, and photographs were received from the Estate of Sally Kent Gorton in 2001. Although not physically integrated with the main portion of the collection, this addition to the Rockwell Kent papers is described with the appropriate series in the online edition of the finding aid.

Writings consist of Kent's continuation of his autobiography It's Me, O Lord! (1995). The unpublished 185 page manuscript written between 1955 and 1971 recounts the artist's travels, exhibitions, and political activities during the 1950s and 1960s. Among the art work there are many drawings and sketches in pencil and ink, of miscellaneous subjects and various projects circa 1920-1939 including figure studies, landscapes and illustrations for various books by Kent. Also included are a color lithograph study for a war poster, circa 1941, and Kent's 1968 costume and set designs for Benjamin Britten's opera Peter Grimes, along with a recording of Peter Grimes and its libretto. Photographs of people include formal and informal portraits of Rockwell Kent, Kent with others, and each of his wives; other individuals portrayed are Ted R. Lambert and Eugene Vuchatich. Other subjects include views of Asgaard Farm, the rebuilt Kent house at AuSable Forks, NY, and Kent's grave.

Kent presented the manuscripts for most of his books to the USSR, along with the Kent Collection. Included in this series are drafts, notes, and completed manuscripts for monographs, articles, speeches, book reviews, catalog texts and introductory essays, and miscellaneous writings (often unidentified) by Kent. Manuscripts are arranged chronologically, with undated items arranged alphabetically by title. Also included at the end of the series are a small number of manuscripts by other authors.

The unpublished continuation of Kent's autobiography It's Me, O Lord! was received from the estate of his widow, Sally Kent Gorton, 2001.

See Appendix for an itemized list of writings from Series 2.
Arrangement note:
The bulk of this series has been scanned. Poems and political statements written by other authors have not been scanned.

Introduction:
The records of the Office of Program Support, National Museum of American Art, 1965-1981, with related records from 1947, were received in the Archives from 1981 through 1994.
Descriptive Entry:
The large volume and irregular arrangement of the records of the Office is reflected in this finding aid. Series 1 through 14, the administrative records, are described on the folder level. Series 15 and 16, the exhibition files that form the bulk of the records, are described on the box level. Series 17 and 18, the oversize and audio-visual records, are described on the item level.

The Office arranged exhibitions by project number. The unnumbered, early exhibitions which appear in Series 15 are not well-documented, and project files contain only scraps of material, which do not paint a full portrait of the exhibition. Materials in these early files appear arbitrary; sometimes a catalog exists, sometimes some budget material, sometimes only correspondence.

In the mid-1960s, when the numbering system was more firmly established, the files increased in volume. The files of the numbered exhibitions which are contained in Series 16 document all aspects of the major exhibitions, though not in an easily recognized, regular order. Most exhibition files contain correspondence, but later files also include material regarding budget issues (both proposals and purchases); loans; shipping and packing; installation and instructions; publicity; and catalog creation (and finished catalogs as well). These files also often reflect the specific planning and equipment requirements of each exhibition.

The box-level format of the finding aid indicates the kinds of documentation that can be found in each box of records for particular exhibitions, since the files for single exhibitions often fill more than one box. Of course, folder titles are the most accurate guides to the contents of a box; however, the Office did not use standard folder titles for basic documentation that recurred for most exhibitions. Therefore, researchers consulting only the "Finances" folder would perhaps miss important records in folders entitled "Budget" or "Bills." Thus the box level description offers the researcher a general description of the material within, with more precise information found on the folder headings. Please note that only the English words for "biennial" and "triennial" have been used in the finding aid, and the documents themselves should be consulted for the proper foreign-language titles of these recurring exhibitions.

For this reason, researchers should search all boxes pertaining to a particular exhibition, rather than a few folders alone; similar material may arise in folders at both the beginning and the end of an exhibition. For a brief overview, researchers should request the folders called "exhibition notebooks" or "final report notebooks," which usually pull together much of the important material from all the folders. Useful material can also often be found in "Lois Bingham's file" for an exhibition.

Visual material exists throughout the Exhibition Series, yet again, the volume increases from the midpoint on. Some exhibition files contain only photographs of exhibited works, while others contain images of exhibited works, of installations, of opening receptions, of artists, of artists at work, of packing, and of various other scenes for panel exhibits. Later exhibitions often involved multimedia displays (slide, film, music shows; technological advances; lectures; panel exhibits) and the files reflect the planning and outcome of these more involved, more visual exhibitions.
Historical Note:
The historic mission and activities of the Office of Program Support date back to the mid-1940s, when the Department of State administered United States exhibition activities overseas. In 1954 this activity was transferred to the United States Information Agency (USIA). The USIA organized and circulated art exhibitions abroad and, in the years immediately preceding 1965, supported American participation in international art shows.

In November 1965, the Smithsonian Institution and the USIA agreed that the Smithsonian would assume the responsibility for an international exchange program of art exhibitions; support American entries in international art exhibitions, in particular, the Venice and Sao Paulo biennials; and service the United States Information Services' field requests, when possible. The USIA would continue to be responsible for national exhibitions presented in the Soviet Union and East European countries.

The International Art Program (IAP), the office responsible for the USIA activities in this area, was transferred to the control of the National Collection of Fine Arts (NCFA). Three program employees were detailed to NCFA. The USIA agreed to continue providing financial assistance for projects begun before the program transfer had been made.

In July 1966, IAP personnel, Lois A. Bingham, Chief, Margaret P. Cogswell, Deputy Chief, and William M. Dunn, Exhibits Officer, became permanent NCFA staff members.

Between 1965 and 1970, most of the exhibition budget for IAP was directed to the large international shows, most notably the biennials. After the threatened boycott of American artists at the Venice biennial in 1970, the Smithsonian began considering its role in the international art shows, not wanting to get involved in politics and the consequences of such activity in its relations with artists. At the same time, the USIA no longer felt that the international shows were the most useful means of reaching audiences abroad. As a result, both agreed that IAP would provide smaller exhibitions for USIA use - a minimum of six a year. NCFA, however, continued to assist American entries in the larger international shows by encouraging private institutions to provide support for them.

In 1973, IAP became the Office of Exhibitions Abroad (OEA), reflecting the changes in its mission. Lois Bingham continued as Chief of OEA.

By 1976-1977, OEA's funding and budgetary support for packaging shows for USIA was waning. In 1977, the Office title was changed to the Office of Program Support, with Bingham as Chief of the Office. The program of the new office became more restrictive, working with NCFA staff in assisting and developing NCFA projects. For other types of exhibitions, the Office was to seek outside financial support. In fiscal year 1980, Bingham became Coordinator of Program Support; and by the end of 1981 the Office ceased all operations.

These records provide detailed documentation on the administrative as well as exhibition activities carried out by USIA, IAP, and OEA from 1954 through 1981. Exhibition records include correspondence with embassies, working committees, organizers, artists; fund-raising letters; loan agreements; condition reports; exhibition reports and catalogs; press releases and newspaper clippings; photographs of artwork, installations, and publicity material (ambassadors, artists, and local committees), as well as biographies of artists involved with the shows. In addition, there are color slides, tape recordings, and film covering some of the exhibitions. Well documented are the Sao Paulo biennial and the Venice biennial dating from 1955 and 1964, respectively.

Administrative records include correspondence and memoranda, histories of the programs, USIA and Smithsonian agreements, and information on the office reorganizations. There is also information on program planning, budgetary material, travel policy, and trips taken by the staff. In addition, there are records on exhibitions sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art and the USIA, resource files broken down by collections and collectors, and professional art organizations, staff meeting notes, and personal diaries.

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.

Posters and Oversize Graphics

Collection Creator:
Ellington, Duke, 1899-1974  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1933-1989, undated
Scope and Contents note:
Consists primarily of posters and original artwork made from plate or blocks, such as inks, silkscreens, and woodcuts. Drawings include images where there is a dominance of line over mass, such as charcoal, pencil, caricatures, pastels, and illustrations. The posters document both foreign and domestic performances of Duke Ellington and His Orchestra, as well as sentiments and interests of fans including works of political, social and cultural interest. Among these posters are items from Ellington's landmark tours of the Near East in 1963 and his 1971 tour of the Soviet Union, as well as, promotional posters created during Ellington's stint with RCA Victor Records. The posters are divided into foreign and domestic tours, non-Ellington posters, and oversized graphics. The foreign tours are further arranged by country/language and the domestic tours are further arranged by state or city. The oversized graphics are arranged into awards and citations, calendars, graphics, photographs, paintings, and drawings. Among the materials are drawings and illustrations composed by contractors for Tempo Music's sheet music covers. These illustrations also came from fans as drawings, graphics, greetings, and gifts. Illustrations include Christmas cards from the White House, illustrations, and photos of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. All oversized materials are arranged by location of item and then alphabetically. All dimensions are approximate and are given only for oversized materials. They are measured in inches, with the height of the poster or graphic followed by width. Titles are the only descriptive information listed in Subseries 6: Original Artwork for Tempo Sheet Music.
