Summary

Caption from Torch: "Reporter broadcasters from 38 foreign language services of the Voice of America were given a special behind-the-scenes tour of the museums early in May. Above, Craig Korr, Freer Gallery museum specialist, talks about conservation in the painting storage room of the Freer. Other stops were made in the political history storage area of MHT, the painting storage area of HMSG, the Insect Zoo of MNH, the 1876 exhibit, and the Federal City exhibit and Woodrow Wilson Center in the Castle. The tour was arranged by USIA officer Joseph Sadlik, on detail to the Smithsonian for the past year."
