Descriptive Entry:
This record unit consists primarily of files created by Kellogg during his tenure as Director of the United States National Museum, 1948-1962. It includes smaller amounts of records kept by Kellogg as Assistant Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, 1958-1962, and as Assistant Curator and Curator in the Division of Mammals, USNM, 1928-1948. The record unit also contains files created by other Smithsonian and USNM officials, including Alexander Wetmore, Kellogg's predecessor as Chief Administrative Officer of the Museum, 1925-1948; Frank A. Taylor, Assistant Director of the USNM; and Albert C. Smith, Director of the National Museum of Natural History. The records deal with Smithsonian and USNM administration and include budget files, 1949-1959, documenting fiscal development of the Smithsonian and its various bureaus, especially the USNM; reports on staff research submitted to the Smithsonian's Research Subcommittee, 1948-1962; a file concerning Smithsonian research funds and bequests made to the Institution, 1926-1957; and administrative files, 1925-1963, which document planning and development of the National Museum of History and Technology and occupancy planning for the east and west wings of the Natural History Building.
