At a Glance
Organized in five series:
This collection is arranged in five series.
Scope and Content
The collection consists of prize-winning exhibits, although there are some exhibits which were awarded an honorable mention. Many of the exhibits are quite large and awkward to handle. In some cases the exhibit might be in a fragile condition and require delicate handling. In many cases, the exhibit is accompanied by an Entry Form, a Nominating Letter, a Photograph of the Winner, a short Biography of the Winner. The Photograph of the Winner is sometimes kept with the exhibit and sometimes the photograph has been removed and will be found in Series III: Photographs of Winners.
