Summary

Contained within a discussion of gifts to the Smithsonian Institution and reports provided on such gifts, a discussion of moving the Freer Gallery's American collection to other parts of the Institution, which would be contrary to Mr. Charles Lang Freer's wishes. The discussion of funding and consolidating the Freer fund with others also came up within the discussion of the Smithsonian magazine, which occurs right in the middle of the discussion about the American collection in the Freer Gallery.
