Scope and Content Note


With records spanning from 1928-1933, this small but intriguing collection documents the short-lived 69th Street Branch of the Pennsylvania Museum from its inception to its closure. Administrative records include correspondence, memoranda, minutes, planning records, press and publicity, photographs, and affiliations. Eighteen exhibitions held between 1931 and 1932 are individually documented, and other exhibition-related records--such as budgets, schedules, insurance, and loans--span from 1931 to 1933.
