 Record Group
Identifier: COR-0007-0-RG
Scope and Contents The Building & Grounds Records contain informative but often scattered and incomplete accounts of building & grounds activities at the Gallery.

Until recent years, most if not all decisions regarding construction, repair, and renovation activities at the Corcoran were carried out by either the Trustee Building & Grounds Committee or by the Gallery's Director. It was not until the 1960s that a staff member...

Overview The Membership Office was established in 1946, when the Trustees appointed the first Membership Secretary. The Trustees simultaneously created their own Committee on Membership. Attention in these early years seemed focused on sponsoring special events and activities and not necessarily on increasing financial contributions or the number of members.
