Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of video elements (1 inch magnetic, 3/4 inch U-matic, VHS), 1/4 inch audiotape, and 16mm film documenting seven productions. The 1986 production "Looking at Earth" (also known as the "Radar Show") was a companion show to the National Air and Space Museum exhibition with the same name. The exhibit was concerned with shuttle radar imaging, and looked at the history of aerial and orbital views of the Earth, from camera-carrying pigeons to aircraft to satellites. "The Reel Jungle," 1988, was a companion film to the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service Exhibition, "Tropical Rainforests: A Disappearing Treasure," which showed the myths and misconceptions that artists and filmmakers have created about tropical rainforests. The film won a 1989 CINE Golden Eagle Award. "Mirrors on the Universe: The MMT Story," 1979, documented the construction of the Multiple Mirror Telescope and its potential for scientific discovery. "Museums and Community," 1988, was a video released by the Office of Museum Programs, which was produced by the Smithsonian Kellogg Project in Museum Education to show how museums can become more involved in their communities. "Enter Life," a 1986 animated film, accompanied the National Museum of Natural History exhibition "The Earliest Traces of Life." The exhibition and film showed the critical stages thought to be involved in the establishment of living things on our planet based on Kenneth McCarn Towe's assessment of possible scenarios and probable hazards early life on Earth may have encountered. "Communication: It's More Than Sound," 1982, was a training film for guards, information desk personnel, and docents for assisting hearing-impaired visitors. "Phone Philm," 1976, was a companion film to the National Museum of American History exhibition "Person to Person" in the Electricity Hall that marked the 100th anniversary of the telephone.

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.
