Series 8

DEPARTMENTAL FILES, 1954-1975.

These records document the relationship between the Office of the Director and the curatorial departments and concern activities such as the acquisition of major collections, special programs, exhibits, and other projects including external fund raising. Included are correspondence; memoranda; and photographs, blueprints, and floor plans for exhibits. Related exhibit records are in Series 4 above. The bulk of the records in Series 8 was created between 1961 and 1975 and are arranged according to the five departments that existed between 1969 and 1975. Most pre-1969 material was apparently pulled and filed with the appropriate files to fit in the 1969 to 1975 administrative hierarchy. Thereunder, files are arranged by curatorial divisions. There is, however, some overlap with records in Series 9 below. In addition, there are records from the former Department of Civil History, which functioned from 1958 to 1968 and includes files that might be expected to be located elsewhere in this Series or in Series 9. The Civil History records concern curatorial divisions within the Department as well as activities outside the department, particularly relating to museum exhibit halls. These records are arranged alphabetically.
