Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s Office of the Director Records contain administrative records from the museum generated primarily between 1974 and 1986, corresponding with the tenure of its fourth director, Henry T. Hopkins. During this time the museum created the Departments of Photography (1980) and Architecture and Design (1983), and established the Elise Stern Haas Curatorial Chair (1983). The museum also changed its name to San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and celebrated its 50th anniversary. These records document all aspects of the museum’s administration, including financial management and fund-raising activities, incoming and outgoing correspondence, educational programs, involvement with other professional museum organizations, and the director’s activities and relationships with artists and other museum directors.
