Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records that document the career of Robert G. Stewart, Senior Curator in the National Portrait Gallery (NPG), and art historian. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 1954, Stewart worked for the National Park Service as historical architect. From 1961 to 1964 he was Director of Properties for the National Trust for Historic Preservation. In November 1964 Stewart became one of the first three staff members of the NPG when he was named Curator in that bureau.

Stewart's work before coming to the Smithsonian is largely undocumented in these records, with the exception of a single article that was probably written in 1960. The bulk of the records describe Stewart's professional work both within and outside of the Smithsonian. Personal correspondence files dating from 1964 through 1994 consist mostly of letters concerning topics of professional interest to Stewart, in which he identifies himself as a curator.

Professional correspondence files dating from 1985 through 1994 consist mainly of public inquiries and Stewart's replies. The records document Stewart's participation in several NPG exhibitions, most notably on the work of Henry Benbridge, which was shown in 1971. Records also contain documentation about Stewart's museum-sponsored travel and his involvement with Smithsonian committees and other bodies.

These records also document Stewart's activities outside the Smithsonian. They contain files on competitions he adjudicated; articles and essays he contributed to various publications; guest lectures, speeches, and other presentations; and outside professional organizations in which he was involved. The records include several files on a course he taught at George Washington University from roughly 1967 to 1972 called "Principles of Museum Work," noted in the files as "ART 146."

This accession consists of records that were transferred from the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the National Portrait Gallery (NPG). They were mostly created by Robert G. Stewart, Associate Curator, 1964, Curator, 1965, Curator of Painting and Sculpture, 1979-1994, and Senior Curator of Painting and Sculpture, 1994. A small volume of records was also created by Monroe Fabian, Assistant Curator, 1969-1971, Associate Curator, 1972-1978, and Associate Curator of Painting and Sculpture, 1979-1986. Fabian died in July 1988.

The records consist mostly of files created by Stewart, Fabian, and others for exhibits that were proposed by museum staff for internal development, or external traveling exhibits that were considered for mounting at NPG. The files include staff evaluations and comments on proposed exhibits, exhibit scripts, documentation of brochure and catalog development, and memoranda between NPG staff as well as correspondence with potential exhibit donors. Some files also document NPG contributions to special traveling exhibits, and staff participation in symposia and seminars.

The records include a small amount of administrative material, plus correspondence files of secretarial staff which consist mostly of replies to public inquiries. The records also include documentation of the book On Stage written by Monroe Fabian, and published in the spring of 1980. These files consist of correspondence regarding the use of quotations and images for On Stage, photographs, a manuscript, and an unbound copy of the published volume.
