This accession consists of scrapbooks created by Elizabeth C. Reed, wife of National Zoological Park (NZP) Director Theodore H. Reed. Mrs. Reed, who often traveled on official business with her husband and hand-reared baby animals from the zoo in her home, collected newspaper clippings and magazine articles, primarily about NZP and its staff and animals, as well as NZP and Friends of the National Zoo newsletters. Clippings from the last three years were never compiled into a scrapbook.
