Summary:
A collection primarily of 19th and early 20th century lantern slides relating mostly to engineering, agriculture, railroads, mining, and extractive industries collected by the Division of Work and Industry, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution.
Scope and Contents:
A collection of 19th and early 20th century silver gelatin dry plate lantern slides acquired by the staff of the Division of Work and Industry, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution. These materials were collected for research purposes and relate to various subjects.

Condition of the material varies widely with some fragile or broken slides. Poor quality images also exist probably due to either the processing of the slides or unstable storage environments. All slides have been digitized and moved to off-site storage to minimize handling and at the same time increase accessibility.

The collection is arranged in nine series: series 1, engineering; series 2, extractive industries; series 3, chemical; series 4, manufacturing companies; series 5, machinery; series 6, railroads; series 7, agriculture; series 8, travel photography; and 9, miscellaneous materials.

Summary:
This collection is comprised of the working records of the Handbook of North American Indians, the unpublished photographs, published photographs, editorial correspondence, Illustrations and Bibliographic research as well as administrative files and linguistics research.
Scope and Contents:
This collection is comprised of the working records of the Handbook of North American Indians, which includes published and unpublished photographs, editorial correspondence, illustrations, bibliographic and linguistic research, and administrative files. The total extent of the collection is 513 linear feet with 11 boxes of oversized material, four boxes of rolled maps and three large map folders.

Series 1: Published photographs (78.75 linear feet) contains the printed, photocopied or digital representations of the photographs and illustrations published in The Handbook of North American Indians (HNAI). The series also contains the correspondence and documentation surrounding the research and use of these images. The files are organized by published volume (culture area or special topic), chronologically by publication date and, therein segmented alphabetically by chapter author. Authors who have contributed multiple chapters within the same volume are further delineated by the chapter title.

Series 2: Unpublished photographs (91.5 linear feet) contains original photographs, photocopied images and/or digital representations of the photographs and illustrations not published in The Handbook of North American Indians (HNAI). It is primarily the result of research trips made by Joanna Cohan Scherer, Illustrations Researcher from 1970-2006. The series also contains the correspondence and documentation surrounding the accession of these images and their potential use in the HNAI project or future use by the NAA.

Series 3: Photo repository files (16 linear feet) contains an alphabetical listing of repositories or photographers that were utilized or inventoried in the collecting of the photographs for volume publication and research. Each file represents a discreet repository- files are arranged alphabetically. Folders contain correspondence, newspaper clippings and company information when available.

Series 4: Central editorial files (134 linear feet) contains the working files of various editors within the office of the Handbook of North American Indians. Within this series you will find correspondence with chapter authors, manuscript edits and related research. Folder titles are organized first by volume publication date, beginning with Volume 8- California and those volumes are organized alphabetically by the last name of each chapter author. Further chapter organization is delineated in the following manner: the front folder contains an original working copy of the chapter manuscript and a bibliography, the second folder contains a file copy of the manuscript and three smaller folders titled: "orthography", "illustrations" and "correspondence". The final portion of the chapter folders consists of the superseded manuscript text.

Series 5: General Editor files (30 linear feet) contains the files of William C. Sturtevant as they relate to his work as General Editor for the Handbook of North American Indians. This material was packed in the order in which it was found in the sub-office of the General Editor. The General Editor oversaw the production of all volumes of HNAI. Included are superseded files from the Indians in Contemporary Society Volume, volume reviews, original author questionnaires for the soliciting of volume contributors as well as a number of research publications.

Series 6: Linguistic Editor files (9 linear feet) consists of files from the office of Linguistic Editor Dr. Ives Goddard. Included are orthographies, alphabets, typologies and personal names gathered in the publication of all volumes of the Handbook of North American Indians but mostly focused on the Language Volume.

Series 7: Managing Editor files (5 linear feet) consists of the files from Dr. Ives Goddard's time as the managing editor of the Handbook. Correspondence, volume production schedules and chapter edits can be found in this series. The managing editor took over the role of the general editor.

Series 8: Editorial assistant files (24 linear feet) consists of the files of Editorial Assistant Paula Cardwell. Ms. Cardwell worked as the assistant to General Editor William C. Sturtevant. This series is unprocessed.

Series 9: Illustrator research files (9 linear feet and 11 boxes of oversized materials) contains the files associated with the illustrations research function of the Handbook of North American Indians office. It is comprised heavily of correspondence with chapter authors and of oversized illustrations for the volumes.

Series 10: Bibliographer files (12 linear feet) contains the files of bibliographer Cesare Marino and others who helped to compile the bibliographies for all volumes of the Handbook.

Series 11: Bibliographic card files and lists (18 linear feet) consists of the Bibliographic card files created to organize the information content of the handbook volumes and stored for potential use in the unpublished Bibliography volumes 19 and 20. This series is unprocessed.

Series 12: Coordinator files (3 linear feet) consists of the papers of the HNAI coordinator office and includes documents related to typesetting, printing, indexing, schedules and documentation of the Handbook publication practices. These files were maintained by Dianne Della-Loggia.

Series 13: Administrative (13 linear feet) consists of the administrative papers of the Handbook of North American Indians office and were maintained by administrator Melvena Jackson. This series is unprocessed.

Series 14: Quarterly reports (3 linear feet) consistss of the quarterly financial reports of the Handbook office from 1976 to 1992.

Series 15: Vertical file (16 linear feet) contains published reference data for use in the making of HNAI, including scholarly articles, research and other publications. This series is unprocessed.

Series 16: Maps (4 boxes of rolled maps and 3 folders of annotated maps).
Arrangement:
The collection is organized into 16 series: 1) Published photographs; 2) Unpublished photographs; 3) Photo repository files; 4) Central editorial files; 5) General Editor files; 6) Linguistic Editor files; 7) Managing Editor files; 8) Editorial assistant files; 9) Illustrator research files; 10) Bibliographer files; 11) Bibliographic card files and lists; 12) Coordinator files; 13) Administrative; 14) Quarterly reports; 15) Vertical file; 16) Maps.
Historical Note:
The Handbook of North American Indians, originally a project of the Smithsonian Office of Anthropology, was transferred to the Center for the Study of Man upon its organization in the late 1960's. With the center's winding down in the late 1970's, the Handbook was returned to the Department of Anthropology. William C. Sturtevant was Editor from the inception until 2007. The office of the Handbook was concerned with the production of a multivolume work intended to supersede F.W. Hodge's two-volume Handbook of Indians North of Mexico, Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin 30, 1907-1910. The Handbook office was terminated in December of 2007 having published 15 of the planned 20 volumes.

Biographical / Historical:
Phil Jordan was a Stamp Art Director for the United States Postal Service (USPS). Jordan's involvement with the USPS started in 1991 and ended 23 years later having worked on 300 stamps.

Jordan grew up in New Bern, North Carolina and attended East Carolina University. After a period of service with the Army Arctic Indoctrination School in Fort Greely, Alaska, Jordan graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a degree in visual communications. Early in his career he worked as an artist for the Richmond Times-Dispatch and the Baughman Company offset lithographers while attending school on the GI Bill.

Later he worked at the advertising agency Robert Kline and Co. Inc. as their art supervisor before serving as the assistant art director the United States Chamber of Commerce. Next, he joined Beveridge and Associates, Inc. guiding art direction for corporate, institutional and government design projects. Eventually becoming a partner at the firm, Jordan left after 18 years to form his own communications consulting firm where he managed projects for USAir, NASA, McGraw-Hill, IBM, the National Air and Space Museum, and Smithsonian Books.

Jordan was responsible for the formats of the Air and Space and Smithsonian magazines and was their Design Director for fifteen years. From there his work as consulting art director for the United States Postal Service's Stamp Development Department saw him art direct and produce 300 postage stamps as well as other stamp collateral publications for 23 years. Among some of the stamps he worked on include the 2011 Neon! Celebrate stamp, the 2012 Major League Baseball All-Stars stamps, the 2013 Civil War stamps; the 2012 Cherry Blossom Centennial stamps; the 1997 Classic American Aircraft stamps; and the 2003 First Flight stamp.

Jordan's work has been featured in a number of exhibitions and in publications such as Graphis, Society of Illustrators, and Communication Arts. A recipient of professional awards from these organizations over the years, he was also the recipient of the NASA Group Achievement Award. He is a past president of the Art Directors Club of Metropolitan Washington and was an avid glider pilot, being a founding member of the Skyline Soaring Club and the former long-time editor of Skylines newsletter.

Biographical / Historical:
The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) was the nation's first extensive steam powered railroad. It was founded by Baltimore merchants in 1827 as a means of promoting trade and making Baltimore competitive with other east coast ports. The original intent of the founders was to provide direct and fast access to the Ohio River, and the markets that the river reached. The railroad, however, went beyond the Ohio River and its lines went as far west as St. Louis and Chicago. The B&O was also known for its use of an electric locomotive in the mid 1890s. It also had a completely air conditioned train, and it was a forerunner in the use of diesel-electric locomotives. Company activities paralleled those of other American railroads and over the course of its life included expansion, near bankruptcy, innovations, regulations, and finally buy out. In February 1963, the Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) completed its purchase of the B&O. Today, B&O is part of the CSX Transportation (CSX) network.

John Work Garrett president of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad 1858-1884, was born in Baltimore, Maryland July 31, 1820. He was the second son of Elizabeth Stouffer and Robert Garrett. He married Rachel Ann Harrison, the daughter of Thomas Harrison, a Baltimore merchant. They had one daughter, Mary and two sons Robert and Thomas Harrison Garrett.

After attending Lafayette College (Pennsylvania) for two years John W. Garrett left in 1836 to become associated with his father's commission business in Baltimore. The commission house which dealt in wholesale groceries, produce, forwarding and a commission business expanded to establish direct connections with Latin America, seek outlets in Europe and develop its own banking operations. In time its financial operations overshadowed the commission and shipping business.

When John W. Garrett began to invest heavily in Baltimore and Ohio Railroad stock, the road was in competition with the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal and the stock was not popular. Its value rose steadily over the years. Mr. Garrett was elected a director of the railroad in 1855. His report as chairman of a subcommittee on the need for additional funds to complete the line to the Ohio River led to his election to the presidency of the road on November 17, 1858, a position he held for 26 years. New policies with emphasis on economy, personal supervision and gradual expansion were inaugurated and consistently maintained, in spite of a general financial crisis, Mr. Garrett's first year in office showed a net gain in earnings.

Sympathetic to his southern friends during the Civil War, Mr. Garrett nevertheless supported the Union. He recognized the inevitability of Confederate defeat by superior northern resources. Confederate leaders blamed him for their inability to seize Washington and he received warm appreciation for his services to the Union cause from President Lincoln. The railroad stretched along the theater of war and twice crossed Confederate territory. It was, therefore, a main objective for southern attack. Branches were frequently damaged by Confederate raids, but the main line to Washington became important for the transport of troops and supplies. The Baltimore and Ohio carried out the first military rail transport in history and the transfer of 20,000 men from the Potomac to Chattanooga in 1863 was a major triumph for its president.

With the advent of peace Mr. Garrett turned to rebuilding and strengthening the railroad. He replaced equipment and track damaged by the war, then extended the system by securing direct routes to Pittsburgh and Chicago and arranging an independent line into New York. Wharves were built at Locust Point for ocean liners and a system of elevators erected. The B&O. built its own sleeping and dining cars, established hotels in the mountains and created its own express company. By 1880, after battles over rates with other trunk lines, a costly rivalry with the Pennsylvania Railroad over the eastern route and charges of discrimination against local shippers Mr. Garrett was at the height of his success. He cooperated in establishing the B. and 0. Employees Relief Association for accident and life insurance, a hospital system, saving and building funds, and arrangements for improving sanitation in the work place. He was on friendly terms with Johns Hopkins, a trustee of John Hopkins Hospital, and with George Peabody, founder of the Peabody institute of which he was also a trustee. Garrett County, Maryland was named in his honor.

John W. Garrett died on September 26, 1884 within a year of his wife's death in a carriage accident. During his connection with the railroad the stock increased from $57 to $200; at the outbreak of the Civil War the railroad was operating 514 miles of rail, gross earnings were $4,000,097 and net per mile was $4246.1 By 1864 gross earnings were $10,138,876 and net per mile, $7113.2 By the end of his presidency mileage had increased to 1711 miles and net earnings were $4535 per mile.3
