Summary

Creator:
Smithsonian Institution Office of the Secretary
Title:
Records, 1925-1949
Dates:
1925, 1925-1949, 1929
Notes:
These records chiefly document the policy and administration of the Smithsonian under Charles G. Abbot, 1928-1944, though they overlap parts of the administrations of Secretaries Charles D. Walcott and Alexander Wetmore
Smithsonian bureaus which were founded, enlarged, or significantly changed during these years, and which are represented here, include the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory; the National Gallery of Art, now the Smithsonian American Art Museum; the National Gallery of Art, founded by Andrew Mellon; the National Zoological Park; the National Air Museum, now the National Air and Space Museum; and the Canal Zone Biological Area, now the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. Abbot's tenure was complicated by the Depression and World War II, which restricted many of the developments which seemed so promising under his predecessor. The principal event of his administration was Andrew Mellon's gift of a national art museum. Abbot created a Division of Radiation and Organisms within the Astrophysical Observatory, always his personal interest. With the use of Works Progress Administration funds he was also able to produce major improvements for the National Zoological Park. The Smithsonian continued its ties with the National Academy of Sciences, the Carnegie Institution, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, the National Research Council, the National Geographic Society and similar organizations. During the war, the Smithsonian was instrumental in operating the Ethnogeographic Board and co-operated with the Office of Scientific Research and Development. Its co-operation with such bodies, and new ones like the Atomic Energy Commission, continued in the postwar years. Miscellaneous topics in the records include: the Johnson-Smithsonian Deep-Sea Expedition to the Puerto Rico Trench, 1933; the Eighth American Scientific Conference, Washington, 1940; the Smithsonian Scientific Series; North American Wildflowers; the Langley-Wright controversy; the River Basin Surveys; the abortive design competition for a museum of modern art, won by Eliel Saarinen; "The World is Yours" radio broadcasts; Robert H. Goddard's rocket research; awarding of the Langley Medal; private funding of the Smithsonian, especially the Tamblyn and Brown conferences and the 1927 conference on the future of the Smithsonian; and Charles G. Abbot's research in solar radiation and climatic studies

Descriptive Entry

This record unit traces the operation of the Smithsonian from 1925 to 1949. It contains records from the last years of Secretary Charles D. Walcott's administration, perhaps most notably the ambitious but abortive fund raising campaign to add $10,000,000.00 to the Smithsonian's endowment. The Depression and consequent cut-backs in government support are also present in the records, as well as Smithsonian contributions to World War II, which naturally had a significant impact on operations as well. Smithsonian bureaus that were created, enlarged, or significantly changed during these years, and which are represented here, include the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory; the National Gallery of Art (now the Smithsonian American Art Museum); the National Gallery of Art created from the gift of Andrew Mellon; the National Zoological Park; the National Air and Space Museum; and the Canal Zone Biological Area (now the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute). Secretary Charles G. Abbot, whose tenure these records chiefly document, found his job complicated by the effects of the Depression and World War II. The principal event of his administration was Andrew Mellon's gift of a national art museum. Abbot created a Division of Radiation and Organisms within the Astrophysical Observatory, which he had directed and which remained his chief interest. He was also able to use Works Progress Administration funds to produce major improvements at the National Zoological Park. The Smithsonian maintained its ties with the National Academy of Sciences, the Carnegie Institution, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, the National Research Council, the National Geographic Society, and similar organizations. During World War II the Smithsonian was instrumental in operating the Ethnogeographic Board, and co-operated with the Office of Scientific Research and Development. Topics in these records include: the Johnson-Smithsonian Expedition to the Puerto Rico Trench, 1932; the Eighth American Scientific Congress, Washington, 1940; the Smithsonian Scientific Series; North American Wildflowers; the Langley-Wright controversy; the River Basin Survey; the abortive design competition for a museum of modern art, won by Eliel and Eero Saarinen and Robert Swanson; "The World Is Yours" radio programs; Robert H. Goddard's rocket research; the Langley Medal; private funding for the Smithsonian, particularly the Tamblyn and Brown plans for a 1927 campaign and the associated 1927 Conference on the Future of the Smithsonian; and Abbot's research in solar radiation and climatic studies.

Balzer, Stephen M., 1932-1933. In 1932 the Smithsonian gave the Langley Medal posthumously to Charles M. Manley for his work, especially engine design, on the Langley aerodrome. Balzer, who had worked on the engine before Manley, believed that his contributions were slighted by the award to Manley and asked the Smithsonian to rectify its mistake. This correspondence chronicles the Institution's efforts to satisfy both camps. A-B

Gellatly Collection, 1929-1949. In 1929 and 1930 John Gellatly gave his collection of art to the then National Gallery of Art. During the same period he courted and married his wife, Charlayne Whiteley Gellatly. Mrs. Gellatly, who by her own statement in legal pleadings, married him for his supposed fortune, opposed the transfers and undertook to recover Gellatly's property. Her efforts were assiduous and insistent. In 1944 she secured a resolution directing the United States Court of Claims to investigate her claim. In 1947, after a careful study, the Court found her claims baseless. In 1948 Mrs. Gellatly resumed her suit, this time in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, which dismissed her claim. She lost an appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 1949, which finally ended the controversy. These records chronicle the legal battles and include correspondence with the donor, inventories, photographs, correspondence among Smithsonian staff and the like.

Niagara Falls controversy, 1925. In 1925 Samuel S. Wyer, a consulting engineer and proponent of privately owned hydropower, induced the Smithsonian to publish a series of articles by him on hydroelectric power possibilities at Niagara Falls. Ostensibly a scientific study, the reports were taken as an attack on the principle of public ownership of hydroelectric facilities, and especially on the government owned power system in the Province of Ontario, Canada. The Institution came to feel it had been used for partisan purposes and extricated itself, with some difficulty, from the ensuing controversy, which took on some import because of the discussions in the Congress about public vs. private development of Muscle Shoals in Tennessee (TVA in the Roosevelt Administration).

North American Wild Flowers project, 1925-1944. Mary Vaux Walcott, wife of Secretary Walcott, had long been accustomed to paint wildflowers that she observed when accompanying her husband on his yearly fossil-hunting expeditions. It was decided to produce a series of volumes entitled "North American Wild Flowers" for the purpose of better educating people in botany. From private subscriptions, the Smithsonian raised money for production and produced and sold many copies of the work, in several difference grades of fineness. Professional botanists seem not to have been very impressed by the project, but it was certainly popular and earned considerable money for the Institution's research fund.

Smithsonian Scientific Series, 1925-1949. The Smithsonian Scientific Series was a publishing enterprise set up in 1925 to produce a series of popular books on scientific subjects from material written by staff members of the Smithsonian, who wrote as private persons under contracts with the publisher. The publisher agreed to handle all details of publication and distribution, and to give the Smithsonian a royalty on sales. While these royalties were substantial, there were constant problems as well. Finally, in 1944 the Federal Trade Commission found the firm to be guilty of numerous unfair and misleading trade practices. The Institution withdrew from the arrangement shortly thereafter.

Tamblyn and Brown endowment project, 1925-1928. In 1925 Secretary Walcott set in motion a plan to raise $10,000,000.00 for the Smithsonian's private endowment. The New York firm of Tamblyn and Brown was engaged to run the campaign, and Regent Dwight W. Morrow agreed to head the effort. The plan was aimed at the industrialists and monied class among which the Smithsonian had many ties, and might well have succeeded. Unfortunately Walcott died in 1927 just days before the kick-off of the drive; after Morrow became ambassador to Mexico the campaign faltered and died. Advertisements and Publicity

Wright aeroplane controversy, 1925-1948. This material, including correspondence, news clippings, and photographs, deals with the Smithsonian's efforts to obtain the airplane built and flown by Wilbur and Orville Wright for its collection. This effort followed a tortuous course and was greatly complicated by the fact that Samuel P. Langley, Walcott's predecessor, had been engaged in the same work as the Wright brothers. While Langley himself, however disappointed, does not seem to have contested the Wrights' priority, a number of Langley's friends and assistants downplayed the significance of the Wrights' achievements. Chief among them seems to have been Alexander Graham Bell, Charles M. Manly (pilot of the Langley aerodrome), and Glenn M. Curtiss, who actually flew the overhauled Langley airship at Hammondsport, New York, in 1914. The set result of their improvident and uncharitable opinions was to make the Wrights highly suspicious of the Smithsonian's motives. Their plane was sent abroad to the British Museum. Secretaries Walcott, Abbot (in particular), and Wetmore all labored to soothe the Wrights' feelings, finally succeeding in 1948, when the estate deposited the "Kitty Hawk" at the Institution.
