Notes

  • USNM No. 13413
  • This room was designated as a space for the archives of the Institution in 1894. It was furnished with walnut cabinets for storage of early manuscripts and correspondence as well as drawings, photographs, and plans of the Institution. Over a large worktable in the center of the room, a combination gas-electric chandelier was hung from the pressed tin ceiling. Beneath the two framed pictures to the right of the door can be seen the mouth-piece of an "oral annunciator," an early type of intercom installed throughout the East Wing in 1884.
  • See Annual Report of the Board of Regents of the Smithsonian Institution for the Year 1894, p. 20.
