Smithsonian collections serve as the intellectual base for exhibition, education, scholarship, and discovery

Smithsonian collections serve as the intellectual base for exhibition, education, scholarship, and discovery. The National Zoo was founded in 1889 by an act of Congress for, "the advancement of science, the instruction and recreation of the people.

Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology. If ever there were a jazz appreciation course in a box, this is it. JAZZ: The Smithsonian Anthology renews the legacy of Folkways Records founder Moses Asch’s commitment to letting the people’s music be heard and fulfills the educational mission of Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, the nonprofit record label of the United States national museum.

The Smithsonian Collection of Classic Country Music was a multi-volume set of recordings released by the Smithsonian Institution. Released in 1981, the collection contains 143 tracks deemed to be significantly important to the history of country music. Classic Country Music was issued in eight volumes - either vinyl albums, cassette tapes or 8-track cartridges.

As you would guess, Smithsonian scholars, in their pursuit of knowledge .

As you would guess, Smithsonian scholars, in their pursuit of knowledge, are voracious readers. This year, they dove into innumerable titles, and an abundance of books flowed from their pens, as well. Stimpson’s lifetime work and the valuable Smithsonian collections that he was studying were on loan to the Chicago Academy museum and thus, destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. So the Rio tragedy is a story that repeats itself.

This item represents the Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz. We’re dedicated to reader privacy so we never track you.

Created to replace the Smithsonian's out-of-print 1973 jazz overview, a 47-member committee has curated a package that speaks best to academics looking for a compact jazz encyclopedia

Created to replace the Smithsonian's out-of-print 1973 jazz overview, a 47-member committee has curated a package that speaks best to academics looking for a compact jazz encyclopedia. The approach is chronological, the canon largely unchanged from previous compendia of the music's history, though room has been made for Sun Ra. The 200-page book that accompanies the six-CD, 111-song set provides a dissection of mostly great works with technical, historical and musical details. Overall, it lacks a distinct point of view.

Smithsonian Books publishes a select list of narrative and illustrated nonfiction books. If your little one doesn't already own A IS FOR ALL THE THINGS YOU ARE, then is the perfect excuse to get it! The board book introduces important themes of self-confidence, inclusion, and kindness.

I'm not much of a Western fan, but the collection contained a "Tales of the Texas Rangers" episode, so I bought it. I was not disappointed. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised. The "Texas Rangers" story was, of course, a 20th Century detective story, but it had a Western setting, and Ranger Jase Pearson got to ride his trusty horse Charcoal as he tracked the bad guy through the mesquite. "Texas Rangers" was a little out of place, but not much.
The other stories easily divided themselves into three types:
[1] Juvenile Westerns: "The Lone Ranger", "Hopalong Cassidy", and "The Cisco Kid". All three were boyhood heroes of mine, and the stories proved quite enjoyable. "Hopalong Cassidy" actually turned in a creditable mystery. I also learned that Clayton Moore was not the only person ever to play the Lone Ranger. Brace Beamer did a superlative job of playing the masked man.
[2] Western episodes from anthology series: "The Lux Radio Theatre" turned in a radio dramatization of the movie "The Plainsman", an inaccurate, forgettable biopic on Wild Bill Hickock. "Screen Director's Assignment" presented "Stagecoach", directed by John Ford and starring John Wayne and Ward Bond. The production values were excellent. They had to cut some characters and delete plot features to compress the movie into a 30 minute radio play, but the story was still compelling. "Wild Jack Rhett", from "Escape", inspired the long running radio and TV series "Gunsmoke". The show might also have influenced John Wayne's final Western, "The Shootist".
[3] Adult Westerns: "Gunsmoke" has to be the archetypical adult Western, and William Conrad makes for a convincing Matt Dillon. Hearing his voice, however, I couldn't help but conjure up a mental image of his later TV character, "Cannon". The other offerings, however, were every bit as good. Jimmy Stewart turned in a great performance as "The Six Shooter" in a melodramatic murder mystery. The episode from "Frontier Gentleman" may have been influenced by the Greek myth of the Bed of Procrustes. It might very well also have influenced or been influenced by Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho". "Have Gun, Will Travel" presented a rather trite story of the dude Easterner coming of age in the rough and tumble West.
