Foundation 1898-2005

Scope and Content

The Foundation series contains records documenting the operation of the Foundation, exclusive of those materials which appear in other series. These materials include items documenting the construction and dedication of Foundation buildings, information documenting everyday operations, files relating to individuals, publications, and publicity. Also included are materials contributed by the estates of individuals closely associated with the Foundation, in particular: Nina Hosler Loomis, John S. Garth, and Charles Wade. Some of these papers are not strictly concerned with Foundation activities, yet are included here as a result of their provenance. Also included are the LPs produced by KUSC of the Hancock Ensemble in performance, performances particular to USC held on campus, and news and dramatic programs broadcast on KUSC and other local Los Angeles radio stations; the films created by the Foundation documenting the Hancock Pacific Expeditions, marine biology, and trips of the Velero III and IV; and photographs.
Of particular note are the photographs; these include documentation of the 1930s Hancock Pacific Expeditions by photographer Charles Swett; extensive documentation of these same expeditions by one of their principal scientists, Dr. John S. Garth; and images of orchids and other biological and zoological specimens of interest to scientists associated with the Foundation and USC.

Photographs circa 1910s-1970s

Arrangement

The Photographs are organized by subject into the following subseries: 1. Expedition and specimen photographs; 2. Miscellaneous Hancock Foundation photographs; 3. Flowers and native specimens; 4. Photograph albums; and 5. Foundation building and KUSC.
 

Expedition and specimen photographs circa 1930s-1970s

Scope and Content

The Foundation photographs in this subseries primarily depict expeditions conducted by Capt. Hancock aboard the Velero III in the 1930s; images of scientific data gathering aboard the Velero IV; and specimen photographs. Many of the images exist in both negative and print formats, and there is duplication in the prints. In addition to mounted Foundation photographs with captions and other identification information [boxes 230-238], there are also smaller format photographs [generally with negative information on the reverse] and "snapshot" photos, taken by John S. Garth and other members of the various expeditions. [See also the John S. Garth papers series for snapshots taken by Garth during some of these expeditions.] Of particular interest are the many photographs taken during the 1936 and 1937 expeditions to the Galapagos Islands, Mexico, and South America.

Arrangement

The photographs are physically arranged by format, and intellectually arranged by subject in this finding aid. Many subjects are recorded in photographs and negatives of various sizes and thus are spread across many boxes.
The negatives are physically arranged by negative number or by subject (for those negatives not assigned a number by the Foundation). To locate a specific subject within the numbered negatives, please consult the spreadsheet (available upon request). Unnumbered negatives are broadly described by subject in this finding aid at the box level. Many of the negatives have no corresponding prints; many of the prints have no corresponding negatives. Of the Foundation-numbered negatives, those that are deteriorating have been separated out and housed separately.
