Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
This accession consists of records documenting staff exhibition planning, development, and production of photographic history collections, as well as works by renown contemporary American photographers, at the National Museum of American History (NMAH) and the Arts and Industries Building. Earlier records date back to when the photographic history staff and collections were in the Division of Photographic History, the Division of Graphic Arts and Photography, and the Section of Photography in the Division of Graphic Arts at NMAH, which, prior to 1980, was known as the National Museum of History and Technology and the Museum of History and Technology, respectively. Some records predate the creation of NMAH when the Section of Photography was in the United States National Museum. Also documented in these records is the traveling exhibition The Art of Animation, created by Walt Disney and his staff of artists, which traced the history of motion in pictures and was shown at the National Museum of Natural History.
Staff represented in these records include curators Alexander J. Wedderburn and Eugene Ostroff; assistant curator David Haberstich; museum technician Elliott Hawkins; and photo specialist Peter Liebhold.
Materials include correspondence, memoranda, and notes; proposals; scripts; budget summaries; object lists; press releases; brochures; exhibition catalogs; opening invitations; photographs, slides, and negatives; symposium information; floor plans; newspaper clippings; Hall of Photography planning information and installation photographs; audiotapes; and drawings. Some materials are in electronic format.
