Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
This accession consists of the personal papers of Michael Lee Tiffany. Tiffany combined his studies in geology and paleontology with his skill in the visual arts to work as an exhibits designer and fossil preparator for several museums. Tiffany served at the National Museum of Natural History (NMNH), Office of Exhibits, from 1982 through 1987 where he was involved in the reorganization of the Hall of Paleontology. During this time, he also contributed drawings to several other design and installation projects throughout the Smithsonian Institution. In 1984, Tiffany submitted an entry to the NMNH's Diamond Jubilee poster contest and was subsequently selected as the winner. Materials include Tiffany's original hand-drawn poster entry and award letter; several bookmarks which he helped design; photographs of Tiffany working at NMNH and receiving his poster award; and copies of his resumes and obituaries.
