Collection: Accession 06-100
Language of Materials: English
Summary:

This accession consists of miscellaneous photographs, negatives, maps and drawings which were found in the Processing Room of the Smithsonian Institution Archives, located in the Arts & Industries Building, and were processed in preparation for the Archives' move to Capital Gallery in summer/fall of 2006. It was assumed that some of these materials were originally pulled from their collections and needed to be interfiled into their respective collections. The materials found in this collection consist of those items that could not be interfiled. The records represent a broad range of subjects and topics such as early 20th century photographs of China taken by Dr. Bailey Willis; a photograph of a portrait painting of Richard Delafield, Regent of the Smithsonian Institution, 1865-1871; exterior photographs of the National Museum of Natural History; a catalog print by artist, Duane Michals; and plates from Raphael Pumpelly's article, "Geological Researches in China, Mongolia, and Japan, During the Years 1862-1865" which was published in "Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge," vol. XV, article IV, 1867.
