These records document the official functions and activities of the Assistant Provost for Arts and Humanities from 1982 to 1994, although the bulk of the records date from 1990 to 1993. They consist mostly of memoranda, correspondence, and reports generated both within and outside of the Smithsonian Institution which reflect the operations of bureaus and offices over which the Assistant Provost had oversight. The records also document Smithsonian-wide issues or initiatives that the Assistant Provost was involved with or had interest in.
