Summary:
The Dr. G. Howard White, Jr. Collection contains images of family members and residences relating to the White family of Catonsville, Maryland and Middleburg, Virginia and the Liebig family of Catonsville, Maryland, as well as recreational, industrial, and general sites in Virginia, Maryland, and New Jersey. The images, taken by Dr. G. Howard White, Jr. and Dr. Gustav Adolph Liebig, both amateur photographers, document everything from informal family gatherings and outings to domestic servants, workers, factories and railroad lines. The acession file includes some genealogical information and research on properties conducted in 2005.
Scope and Contents note:
The Dr. G. Howard White, Jr. Collection includes (203) photographic images dated c. 1890s-1920s taken by amateur photographers Dr. G. Howard White, Jr. and Dr. Gustav Adolph Liebig. It includes a diverse sampling of scenes, from family gatherings, homes, and recreational outings to train depots and railway lines, mill and factory workers, domestic servants, livestock, barns and other agricultural and industrial scenes of everyday life. The majority of the photographs were taken in Catonsville, Maryland, and Virginia; many show the homes (both exterior and interior shots) of the White, Dulany, Liebig and Lemmon families. Some show the Princeton University campus in New Jersey. The collection as a whole is a rich sampling of domestic, recreational, and working life in the mid-Atlantic region at the turn of the twentieth century.
Biographical/Historical note:
Dr. G. Howard White, Jr., the principal photographer of the collection, was born at 'Crednall' in Middleburg, Virginia. Many of the people depicted in the photographs of homesteads (such as 'Argyle' in Ellicott City, Maryland) are related to the White family.

Dr. Gustav Adolph Liebig photographed other images in the White Collection. He lived on an estate known as 'Tanglewood,' believed to be located across the street from the Whites in Catonsville, Maryland. (This may account for why Dr. White ended up with images by Dr. Liebig in his collection.) The Liebig family also features prominently in the White Collection.

Las Américas: Un mundo musical/The Americas: A Musical World

Archival materials
Introduction:
2009 marked the final year of the Festival series Nuestra Música: Music in Latino Culture and the culmination of eight years of research that sent the Smithsonian team down several programmatic paths. Four Festival programs presented over 300 artists from the United States and Latin America (see also the 2004, 2005, and 2006 programs). The Smithsonian Folkways CD series that launched the Nuestra Música project, Tradiciones/Traditions, produced thirty recordings of grassroots música latina from Puerto Rico and nine countries: Chile, Colombia, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Paraguay, the United States, and Venezuela. The first twenty-five recordings earned eight GRAMMY nominations and one Latin GRAMMY award. The online Smithsonian exhibition Música del Pueblo: A Smithsonian Virtual Exhibition offers more than two dozen videos, each with interpretive text, representing a broad swath of homegrown musical styles from Chicago hip-hop to Mexican mariachi to Chilean nueva canción to ancient ritual matachín dance from New Mexico, and much more in between.

Three fundamental principles shaped the overall Nuestra Música project and guided its final installment at the 2009 Festival. First is the notion that a musical tradition is larger than any one artist or ensemble. When accomplished traditional musicians perform, they embody knowledge, values, and practices that are grounded in and express a "cultural territory" of shared life experience, past and present. This territory is also an environment which, like our natural environment, may need to be consciously cared for and actively conserved. Second is the idea that traditional music's power comes from its relationship to the community. Music has meaning because people give it meaning, and in turn it awakens familiar feelings that move us and holds connotations that give us purpose. Many musicians consider their music to be an expression of cultural and social identity precisely because it carries the weight of many participants and contributors over time. And the third principle is that tradition always changes, either in its sound or in its meaning, for those who take part in it. Tradition may reflect societal change or be an agent of cultural change or social resistance.

Música latina is an expanding universe of styles and social meaning. New styles of music are created alongside older styles that remain. As the Latino world becomes more urban, more globalized, and saturated with popular media and profit-driven products, community-driven music often moves to the stage setting and gains a heightened role as art form, cultural icon, and social rallying force. Age-old music acquires newly constructed meanings at the same time that new creations take on the mantle of old functions. In the competitive and specialized modern context, instrumental virtuosity is on the rise, and many local, micro traditions fade away in the shadows. Music, as a form of heightened communication, lies at the forefront of cultural life; and traditional music, laden with its seasoned cultural values and its associations with an entire way of life, becomes a charged symbol of statehood, a means of social self-reliance, and a "cultural territory" of elevated consciousness. In times of wrenching social change, musical tradition evolves in order to stay "traditional" and remain a fully functioning part of community life. As agents of innovation and continuity, traditional musicians are rooted in the past, but look to the future - the future of their music and the future of their people. Festival visitors could experience directly how música latina serves as a source of cultural diversity, artistic creativity, social identity, and economic productivity in the Latino world.

Olivia Cadaval and Daniel Sheehy were Co-Curators and Cristina Díaz-Carrera was Program Coordinator. Patricia Abdelnour, Alejandra de la Paz, Vásquez Espinosa, Mónica Fernández de Soto, Dayana Frontado, Pedro Gabriel, María Reynoso León, Roberto Vásquez, and Denisse Yanovich served as Country Coordinators.

The program was produced with major support from the Smithsonian Latino Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Latino Center. Donors included the Government of the Republic of Colombia, the Chevron Corporation, and the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in the United States. The Embassy of Mexico, Government of the State of Veracruz, Government of the State of San Luis Potosí, the Mexican Cultural Institute, the National Ministry of Culture of the Dominican Republic, the National Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic, Mariachi Chula Vista, and Fondo Cultural del Estado de Paraguay were contributors.

Introduction:
The Smithsonian has long counted on Washington area residents as an audience for its many museums and programs. In this first of a planned multi-year program, tables were turned as traditional musicians from local black, Hispanic and Asian American communities told Festival visitors about the social organizations and the multi-cultural urban context within which their aesthetic expressions flourish. Washington, the residential city beyond the national monuments, burgeons with cultures transplanted from beyond urban, state, and national boundaries as well as with hybrid traditions newly rooted in an urban environment. Over the next several years the Office of Folklife Programs intended to explore the fascinating, vital, and variegated pool of cultures that enliven the Washington metropolitan area. The 1987 program gave special emphasis to music among Washington's communities.

Music is a central part of festive occasions and celebrations as well as an integral feature of everyday life. People mark what they feel is distinctive and valuable through the use of music, frequently accompanied by dance and ritual. For instance, various Asian communities of Washington have maintained some of the seasonal ceremonies of their homelands, such as Lao or Chinese New Year's celebrations. These elaborate and colorful ceremonial events incorporate music, costumes, parades, food, and dance and draw community members from the entire eastern seaboard.

African American gospel music thrives in a variety of forms in Washington, ranging from the harmonies of traditional quartet groups to the sounds of more contemporary soloists, ensembles, and choirs, some of which blend classical techniques with more traditional black gospel music. Hundreds of churches support numerous choirs, smaller family groups, and other ensembles and soloists who provide their memberships with gospel music. Gospel music is central to a variety of community events in addition to regular services: for example, pastor, choir, and church anniversary celebrations, as well as funerals are filled with gospel music.

Particularly within Washington's growing Latino community, sharing of traditions has resulted in a synthesis or pan-ethnic style, celebrating a multicultural heritage. In this urban milieu Hispanic, Caribbean, and African musicians constantly create new urban performance forms by drawing fragments from known repertoires and styles and transforming them into new expressions through the use of new harmonies, updated texts, and changes in tempo, rhythmic configurations, or performance style.

Phyllis M. May-Machunda served as Curator of the Metropolitan Washington program and Camila Bryce-Laporte as Assistant Program Coordinator.

The Metropolitan Washington program was made possible in part by the Music Performance Trust Funds, a non-profit organization created by U.S. recording companies to fund live and free performances (Trustee: Martin A. Paulson).
