Department of Exhibits

[Record group 232-4-6]
Agency Function

Agency History
In March 1926, the Department of Exhibits included the following divisions: Fine Arts; Education and Social Economy; Forum; Medicine and Allied Sciences; Exhibit Palace No. 1; Exhibit Palace No. 2; Exhibit Palace No. 5; Palace of Fashion Concession; and Sales. Religion, originally a division of the Department of Domestic Participation and Special Events, was subsequently combined with the Education and Social Economy division in the Exhibits Department. The surviving departmental files described below do not correspond to this divisional arrangement, however, and they are scanty. For further information on the exhibits, see the records of the departments of Admissions and Concessions, Domestic Participation and Special Events, and the Women's Department; the official history of the Sesqui-Centennial celebration; and the photograph and newsclipping series.
