Historical Note

Theodore H. Reed joined the staff of the National Zoological Park (NZP) in 1955 when he accepted appointment as Veterinarian. When NZP Director William M. Mann retired in 1956, Reed became Acting Director. He was appointed Director in 1958. Reed continued to lead the NZP until 1983. At that time he was made Senior Advisor, in which capacity he remained until his retirement the following year.

Reed's twenty-seven year tenure as Director of the National Zoological Park was marked by tremendous change. In 1958, the NZP was in desperate need of revitalization. Its newest exhibition building was twenty-one years old, having been constructed in 1937 by the Public Works Administration. Many of the original buildings (dating to 1893) remained in use, and all were in need of repair. NZP administrative operations were housed in the dilapidated 1805 mansion, "Holt House," in dire need of renovation. Utilities were antiquated and unreliable. Inadequate appropriations prevented proper staffing of the Zoo. The professional staff lacked curators, research scientists, and adequate medical personnel.

Under Reed's direction, with assistance from the Friends of the National Zoo, a "Master Plan for the National Zoological Park" was prepared in 1961 by the firm Daniel, Mann, Johnson, and Mendenhall. The master plan was approved by the Smithsonian's Board of Regents in 1962. Federal appropriations began in fiscal year 1963 for a series of phased renovation and construction projects. Buildings renovated included the bird house (along with the construction of a new walk-through flight cage), 1965; the monkey house, 1975; the elephant house, 1975; the reptile house, 1981; and the small mammal house, 1983.

New construction carried out under the master plan included a complex for hardy-hoofed and delicate-hoofed stock, 1967; the Hospital-Research Building, 1969; the William M. Mann Memorial Lion-Tiger Exhibit, 1976; the Education-Administration Building, 1977; the Necropsy Building, 1979; the General Services and Parking Facility, 1978; and a new great-ape house, 1981. Among the several new animal exhibits built during the period were Smokey Bear Park, 1978; Beaver Valley, 1979; the North American Mammal exhibit, 1980; and Monkey Island, 1983.

The 1960s witnessed a new emphasis on developing programs to fulfill the NZP mission of scientific research, recreation, education, and conservation. Increased appropriations allowed for efficient management of the Zoo, as additional staff was hired and new offices, departments, and programs were established. A Scientific Research Department was created in the mid-1960s under the direction of John F. Eisenberg. The Department conducts important original research on aspects of animal behavior and communication, reproduction and breeding, and the structure of mammalian societies. Departmental staff also participated in several field studies in the United States and foreign countries.

Management of the NZP animal collection was reorganized and placed under the direction of a professional staff. Zoologists were hired as curators to oversee the exhibition and welfare of NZP animals. The animal health program was strengthened, and a new department of animal pathology was established. Several important additions to the animal collection were made during the period. Included were the acquisition of the white tigress, Mohini, in 1960; the gift of a pair of Komodo dragons from the government of Indonesia in 1964; and the arrival of a pair of giant pandas from the People's Republic of China in 1972. A strong breeding program was also emphasized at the Zoo. Rare or endangered species born at NZP included a snow leopard (the first born in the Western Hemisphere); lowland gorillas; white tigers; orangutans; bald eagles; a kiwi chick (the first born in captivity outside of Australia and New Zealand); and golden lion tamarins.

The education and information function of the NZP received new direction under Reed. A new system of signs and labels for animal exhibitions was developed, and public programs such as "Zoolab" were established. This aspect of the Zoo's mission benefitted considerably by the creation of the Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ). Established in 1958, FONZ is a non-profit organization designed to help develop community and public support in behalf of the NZP. Originally concerned with capital improvements and modernization, the focus of FONZ activities changed to education by the mid-1960s. Eventually, FONZ took charge of parking, food, and souvenir concessions at the NZP with the proceeds used to augment educational work and scientific research.

Perhaps the most important event in Reed's twenty-seven year career as NZP Director occurred in 1975 when the General Services Administration transferred over 3,000 acres of land in Front Royal, Virginia, to the Smithsonian Institution to establish the Conservation and Research Center (CRC). The goal of CRC is to conduct research on and develop breeding programs for endangered and exotic species.

Descriptive Entry

These records provide primary documentation of Theodore H. Reed's twenty-seven year career as Director of the National Zoological Park (NZP). Also included are a few records created during his tenure as Senior Advisor, 1983-1984. A small amount of material was created by Reed's predecessor, William M. Mann. Included are materials concerning the modernization and renovation of the NZP; administrative reorganizations and the creation of a managerial hierarchy at the Zoo; the development of NZP programs in animal management, scientific research, animal health and pathology, education and information, construction management, graphics and exhibits, and police and safety; the evolution of the idea for an NZP breeding farm, and its realization in the creation of the Conservation and Research Center in Front Royal, Virginia, in 1975; and the establishment and programs of the Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ).

Most of the files relating to the history of the NZP under Reed are found in Series 1. Also included is a subject file containing newspaper clippings, articles, and publications concerning the NZP; collected materials documenting NZP history; and files regarding NZP policy and procedures, legislation relating to the Zoo, special events held at NZP, and related materials. Files concerning the administration of the NZP by the Smithsonian Institution also provide documentation of the development of the NZP over the last four decades. Especially important are correspondence and memoranda with Secretary S. Dillon Ripley and Assistant secretaries Sidney R. Galler and David Challinor.

The records also include correspondence of Reed, 1971-1976, primarily from the general public requesting information on the NZP and its programs and files on the NZP animal collection which contain acquisition, exchange, exhibition, and life history information.

NZP's participation in the zoological park professional world is thoroughly documented in these records. The American Association of Zoological Parks and Aquariums (AAZPA) files contain materials concerning Reed's activities as an officer of the organization, as well as records documenting the NZP's membership in AAZPA. Records regarding relations between the NZP and domestic and foreign zoological parks and aquariums are found in two separate series. The files concern animal exchanges, cooperative breeding arrangements, consultation and advice provided by the NZP, and professional issues.

For additional records of the NZP see Record Unit 74.

NATIONAL ZOOLOGICAL PARK OFFICES, OFFICIALS, AND PROGRAMS, 1955-1984 AND UNDATED.

This series provides extensive documentation of the administration of the National Zoological Park (NZP) and the development of its programs during Theodore H. Reed's tenure as Acting Director, 1956-1958, and Director, 1958-1983. Included are records concerning managerial reorganizations and the creation of an administrative hierarchy at the NZP; the development of NZP programs in animal management, zoological research, animal health, pathology, education, construction management, and graphics and exhibits; the origin and development of the idea for an NZP breeding farm, culminating in the creation of the Conservation and Research Center in Front Royal, Virginia, in 1975; the establishment and programs of the Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ); and the modernization of NZP exhibits and facilities.

The records are arranged in a file plan developed when many of the current NZP offices were established in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Records of predecessor offices or files relating to similar functions are filed under the current office.

OFFICE OF ANIMAL MANAGEMENT

Prior to the early 1960s, management of the NZP animal collection was primarily the responsibility of the animal keeper force. In 1961, a professional zoologist, Waldfried T. Roth was appointed General Curator in charge of the Animal Department. Roth resigned in 1964, and Donald R. Dietlein was appointed Manager of the Animal Department. In 1968, the Department of Living Vertebrates (DLV) was created to manage the NZP animal collection. Donald D. Bridgewater was named Head of the new Department. Kerry A. Muller was given management of the Bird Division and Jaren G. Horsley was hired to direct the Reptile Division. DLV was abolished in 1971, and administration of the animal collection was given to Floris M. Garner, Assistant Director for Zoological Programs. Garner resigned the following year, and the Office of Animal Management (OAM) was created. Horsley was appointed General Curator of the new office.

OFFICE OF ANIMAL HEALTH

Theodore H. Reed was appointed Veterinarian at the NZP in 1955. Reed was only the second full-time staff Veterinarian hired by the Zoo - the first being Carter H. Anthony who served for a short time in the early 1940s. Most medical work performed on NZP animals was by veterinarians from other government agencies and local colleges and universities. Reed was appointed Director in 1958, and replaced as Veterinarian by James F. Wright. After Wright's resignation in 1962, Clinton W. Gray was appointed to the post. Veterinary medicine was recognized as an official administrative unit of the NZP in 1969, when the Animal Health Department was established. Its name was changed to the Division of Animal Health in 1971; the Office of Animal Health (OAH) in 1973; and the Department of Animal Health in 1980. Gray continued in charge of animal health until 1975. In that year R. Mitchell Bush was appointed Chief of OAH. During 1974-1975, veterinary medicine was combined with pathological work under the Office of Animal Health and Pathology.

OFFICE OF EDUCATION

Prior to the early 1960s, the education/information mission of the NZP was primarily carried out by the staff of the Office of the Director. In 1962, Marion McCrane, a zoologist, was hired to head the Information and Education Section. Duties of the Section included signage and labels; dissemination of information on the zoo and its programs; and service as NZP liaison with the media. Sybil E. Hamlet was named Acting Head of the section after McCrane resigned in 1969. In 1972, the Division of Interpretation was created to administer the public service activities of the NZP. Saul W. Schiffman was appointed Chief. The new division's duties were expanded to include exhibit production. In 1974, the Office of Education and Information was established, and the following year Judith White was named Chief. Its name was changed to the Office of Education in 1978.
