New York World's Fair 1939 and 1940 Incorporated Records

Collection Collector:

Exhibition Collectors Historical Organization  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1900 - 1988
Scope and Contents:
This series contains records documenting the creation, development, management and operation of the fair. Fair administrators chose the future as the focus of the fair. The theme "the world of tomorrow" presented visitors with what they hoped was a new and clearer vision of the current world in preparation for the future. The fair was also intended to be a distraction from the depression and the looming prospect of war. In addition, fair administrators recognized the value of creating an international event. More than sixty countries participated in the fair and used it as an opportunity to increase cultural awareness and to promote tourism. Countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Venezuela, Cuba, Mexico, Nicaragua and the Pan American Union were all represented in an attempt to redefine existing negative Latin American stereotypes.

The fair was divided into seven sections, each covering a different subject area and focusing on a particular type of activity. Included were the Amusement Area, Communications and Business Systems Zone, Community Interest Zone, Food Zone, Government Zone, Production and Distribution Zone and Transportation Zone. The materials are arranged into nine subseries. Subseries one primarily documents the ideas and administrative activities of creating and managing the construction of the fair. Subseries two through eight contains material relating to or created for distribution in the seven areas of the fair. Subseries nine consists of ephemera distributed to the general public throughout the fair grounds.
