Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of records that document the planning, development, and execution of television productions for the "Here at the Smithsonian" (HATS) series. Also included are developmental materials for ideas that were not carried through to a full production, as well as material relating to singular projects unrelated to HATS. Subject matter for the HATS series were wide and varied, including: orchids, Frank Lloyd Wright, insects, aviation, kites, ballooning, Duke Ellington, jewelry, and the National Zoo.

The "Here at the Smithsonian" series was aired nationwide over the Public Broadcasting System between 1982-1989. Productions were created to highlight and or record significant Smithsonian anniversaries and events, holidays, special projects, major exhibitions, or areas of unique or special interest.

Some of the earliest records may have been created by Ann Carroll who served as Series Producer for HATS (1981-1985; volumes I-IV). However, the bulk of the records were created and maintained by John P. Meehan, Audio Visual Production Specialist, and Series Producer for HATS (1986-1989; volumes V-VIII). Please note that Carroll and Meehan acted as producers on both the series and segment level during the time of the series.

Materials include contracts, correspondence, editing logs, memoranda, notes, research material, scripts, and tape logs.

NOTE: See accession 00-132 for the video tapes of the above referenced productions.

Descriptive Entry:
These records document the planning and execution of "Living Self-Portraits," a series of interviews with prominent American artists. Marc Pachter, Chief Historian, conducted the interviews at the National Portrait Gallery (NPG). The "evenings" were a collaborative effort between the Resident Associates Program, Smithsonian Productions, WETA (Washington, DC's public television station), and NPG.

As stated in a letter to Agnes De Mille (interviewed October 10, 1990), "the self-portraits are informally autobiographical, going beyond what might be found in published biographical sources" and the format was "an hour of conversation with...Marc Pachter" before "a select group of 250 enthusiastic and informed guests to share the event in the Great Hall of the National Portrait Gallery." The interviews were videotaped and segments were to be used in the Smithsonian Productions series "Smithsonian World" that aired on WETA television.

The interviewees featured in the records are dancer and choreographer Agnes De Mille, actor Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., editor of the Washington Post Katharine Graham, and photographer Gordon Parks.

Materials include correspondence, memoranda, program notes, budgets, itineraries, sketches of the Great Hall (NPG), technical specifications, releases and agreements, logistical planning files, reference files, mailing lists, notes, and related records.
