Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records that document the administrative activities of Marc Pachter during his tenure as Deputy Assistant Secretary for External Affairs (1990-1994), Counselor to the Secretary for Electronic Communications and Special Projects (1994-1995), and Counselor to the Secretary (1995-2000), respectively.

The majority of the records document activities associated with the formation and work of the Electronic Media Board formed in 1991 to address the issues of uniformity and efficiency in the review and production of Smithsonian electronic media outreach and education efforts. The Electronic Media Board was composed of the following members: Chair - Deputy Assistant Secretary for External Affairs (Pachter); the Director of the Office of Telecommunications; the Smithsonian Senior Business Officer; and representatives from the Office of General Counsel, Council of Bureau Directors, Council of Information and Education Directors, and the Institutional scholarly research community. The Electronic Media Board was disbanded in 1997.

The Board's mandate was as follows: 1) identify and eliminate duplication in existing media projects thus becoming more cost-effective and efficient with regard to the production of those projects; 2) identify legal and financial issues of importance to the Institution and to avoid unnecessary risks; 3) assess appropriateness of projects against Institutional goals and standards; and 4) ensure that procedures are in place for expert oversight by Smithsonian staff of program content, production, and use of the Smithsonian name.

In addition to the records of the Electronic Media Board, there are records relating to Pachter's interaction with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, The Smithsonian Associates, the Smithsonian World television program, and a major trip to Japan. Materials include agendas, minutes, notes, reference files, correspondence, memoranda, reports, development files, budget files, subject files, and related materials.
