Environmental Design Archives Completes NHPRC Grant The Environmental Design Archives (EDA) at the University of California, Berkeley, has completed a twelve-month project funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC). The project, Living and Learning: The Architecture of Housing and Schools—Providing Access to the Records of Two Architects, resulted in the archival processing of the Ernest J. Kump and Charles Warren Callister collections spanning the years 1928 to 2007. The collections include sketches, personal notebooks, lectures, correspondence, drawings, photographs, and project files. Information and userfriendly project indexes are available on the EDA website (www .ced.berkeley.edu/cedarchives/); complete finding aids are available on the Online Archive of California (www.oac.cdlib.org). Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives Exhibit Opens Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives, an exhibition that features more than three hundred artifacts from nine decades of Disney history, opened at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago this October. The exhibit celebrates the accomplishments and innovations of Walt Disney and the ongoing legacy of the company that bears his name. Items featured include clips from several of Disney’s earliest animated works; a partial re-creation of Disney’s formal office; props from Disney liveaction films, such as Mary Poppins and Pirates of the Caribbean; and animation models and artwork. The exhibit will run through May 4, 2014.
