This accession consists of images and other documentation associated with the historic photograph collection created by the National Zoological Park (NZP). Images document
the zoo and its animals, staff, exhibits, facilities, and events as well as collecting trips. Materials include a numerical print index, reference prints, cyanotypes, interpositives,
negatives, and slides as well as collection surveys and photocopies of images and image labels. This accession does not include the original images.
This accession consists of the National Zoological Park's (NZP) photograph collection. Images document the zoo and its animals, veterinary care, staff, exhibits, facilities,
events, and research. The majority of images were taken by staff such as Jessie Cohen, NZP's official staff photographer from 1979 through 2009. Materials include slides,
negatives, contact sheets, prints, and transparencies. A small number of images are accompanied by textual information.
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.
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.
