This accession consists of the records of Ellen Roney Hughes, Museum Specialist, which document the planning, development, production activities, and various other matters for the exhibitions Superman: Many Lives, Many Worlds, Jackie Robinson and the Integration of Major League Baseball, Puppets and Things on Strings, A Nation of Nations, Sports Feelings: U.S./Soviet Sports Photography, and Sports and Songs in America, 1840-1940 at the National Museum of American History (NMAH), as well as for Smithsonian's America: An Exhibition of American History and Culture in Chiba (Chiba-Shi), Japan. A two-day symposium, "The Superhero in America," was produced in conjunction with Superman: Many Lives, Many Worlds, which became a traveling exhibition as well. Earlier records date back to when Hughes was in the Division of Community Life at NMAH, and when the museum was known as the National Museum of History and Technology. Also represented in these records are curators Carl H. Steele and Bernard S. Finn. Materials include correspondence, memoranda, and notes; proposals; budget summaries; contracts and agreements; scripts; object lists; symposium information; press clippings and news releases; floor plans; loan information; visitor comments; installation photographs; a press kit; and brochures.
