Scope and Content Note

Of the approximately one dozen exhibitions documented in this series, five feature recent acquistions from 1965 to 1971. Some looked at the past, such as "Philadelphia Silver" (1956) and "English 18th-century Enamels" (1972), while others looked to the future, such as "Product Environment: New Furniture" (1970). Other exhibitions include the Museum's 75th anniversary celebration "Diamond Jubilee" (1950), "Threads of History" (1966), a one-month show surveying decorative textiles from the Egyptian to Modern age, and organized by the Costume and Textile Department; "The Animal Kingdom" (1969), and "The Campbell Museum Collection" (1969).

An inventory by exhibition title is available in the Archives. It includes a topical folder list for "Threads of History" and "Product Environment." There is also a separate topical folder list of "Philadelphia Silver."
