Date:
1892-1955
Scope and Contents:
Letters, printed matter, photographs, notes, and scrapbooks.
Letters, 1920-1955, mainly 1929-1939, regard Jewett's lectures, reviews, reorganization of Goodman Theater, and the removal of the painting "Song of the Lark" from exhibition at Art Institute of Chicago, including 1 letter from Carter H. Harrison, former mayor of Chicago, disagreeing with Jewett's opinion on "Song of the Lark" and discussing whether or not people can recognize which art is representative of their time.
Printed material, 1930-ca.1935, includes two exhibition catalogs, four reviews by Jewett, a page from her appointment diary, and newsletters from art and journalism organizations. Other material includes Christmas cards, 1927-1940, some with original artwork, and 2 valentines; photographs, undated and 1930, among them Diana Thorne with one of her paintings, and Mrs. Archibald Freer, 1930; two reproductions and a photograph of artwork; notes, 7 sheets, with dates of articles Jewett considered her best and a list of columns she wrote; and nine scrapbooks of articles by Jewett.
Biographical / Historical:
Art critic; Chicago, Ill. Jewett first obtained a job at the Chicago Tribune in 1917 through the editor, her cousin Colonel Robert McCormick. She started writing fiction, beauty, and fashion columns, and, in 1918, became art editor. She retired in 1956. Her generally conservative criticisms treated many modernist painters and movements unfavorably. She was involved with anti-modernist art groups such as the Palette and Chisel Club and the Sanity in Art Society, on whose board she served. Jewett also wrote verse which the Tribune published. She published two books of poems: FROM THE TOP OF MY COLUMN (1927) and IN THE WIND'S WHISTLE (1929). She married Godfrey Lundberg in 1920, and retained her maiden name professionally.
Provenance:
Donated 1986 by William Lundberg, Eleanor Jewett's son. His two sisters, Joan Lundberg and Lucy Schneider, also contributed to this gift.

Date:
1846-1995
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. Barkley, John C. Breckenridge, George Bush, Schuyler Colfax, Calvin Coolidge, Charles Curtis, George M. Dallas, Charles G. Dawes, Charles W. Fairbanks, Millard Fillmore, Gerald R. Ford, John N.
