Quarterly Report, 1959 April-1959 May

 File — Box: 1, Folder: 4
Identifier: Series 2

Scope and Contents

From the Series: The series contains reports submitted by the Registrar's Office on an annual (1968-69), bi-monthly (1977-80), and quarterly (1959-72) basis. The bulk of the series is made up of quarterly reports. These contain information on accessions, attendance, docents, exhibitions, insurance claims (beginning in 1965), and loans in and out. The reports also include a special section on the Clark Collection for 1959 and a section on the Corcoran storeroom evacuation project in 1970-71, during which a thorough inventory of the collection was made. In addition, these quarterly reports, like those for the Curatorial Office, contain a Conservator's Report. The Registrar's Reports contain a conservator's section from 1959 to March 1965 and for 1969-70. Beginning in 1971, the Conservator submitted a quarterly report separate from the Registrar's.

The Registrar's Annual Report for 1968-69 records information such as acquisitions, donors names, loans to other institutions, and travelling exhibitions. The report has been retained because it provides some information which is different from that found in the published Annual Report for that fiscal year.

The bi-monthly reports feature information, often in statistical form, on acquisitions, insurance claims, loans, reproduction rights, and travelling shows. They appear sporadically for the years 1977-80.
