Apollo Stowage Lists Project: Apollo 14 "Revision Notices"

When missions headed to the moon from 1969 to 1972, their vessels were packed with items for research, survival, safety, and emergency. Some of these items were meant to be left behind and some were to return to Earth. Last minute changes to these items were recorded in a second inventory. You'll help researchers better understand the details of the lunar missions with these Apollo 14 Revision Notices. **NOTE** For obvious reasons the stowage lists had to be prepared several weeks in advance of the launch. Planning, however, went on up to the last minute. For most missions stowage list changes were reported in "Revision Notices" - lists amended just prior to launch. These lists contain "Change Date" and "Change Reason" fields, which should be transcribed using the same conventions as the stowage location field and the dates using the mm-dd-yyyy format, as described in the instructions.

Apollo Theater Cards - Frank Schiffman Apollo Theater Collection (Set 1)

The Apollo Theater hosted numerous performances by popular entertainers who were primarily African-American, including Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Smokey Robinson, and the Temptations from the early 1930s to the present. In 1934, Frank Schiffman became the first manager of the Apollo Theater. Soon thereafter, he became co-owner, and retained the management position until the early 1960s. During the late 1940s and early 1950s, Schiffman's sons, Jack and Robert assisted him with the management of the Apollo, and later took over management when Frank Schiffman's retired. To manage the Theater, the Schiffmans kept a number of different types of records, including “booking cards,” organized by the name of the artist, which detail the dates of performances; fees paid; and brief, but often quite candid, opinions on the quality of the performances, the performers and their drawing power (or lack of it). These helped the Schiffmans to determine future bookings and contracts. We're seeking your help to make these cards more useful for research and exploration; learn how to transcribe them here.

Arthur Dove

Arthur Dove (1880-1946) Draft of a letter to Alfred Stieglitz, May 1933 Arthur and Helen Torr Dove papers, 1905-1975 In 1933, painter Arthur Dove drafted these letters to collector and museum founder Duncan Phillips. Dove drafted this response to Phillip’s proposal to cut the painting, The Bessie of New York, in half. Dove strongly disagreed with the idea but did not want to offend an important patron. Today the painting is still fully intact and in the collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art.
