Robert B. Anderson Papers. 1933 - 1989. Photographs

1865 -1989

The photographs in this series were accumulated by Robert B. Anderson over the course of his adult life. The bulk of the photographs concern Anderson's involvement in Federal government, primarily as Secretary of the Navy (1953-1954), Deputy Secretary of Defense (1954-1957), and Secretary of the Treasury (1957-1961). Later photographs mostly concern his financial investments and his diplomatic work on behalf of the United States. In addition, there are photographs of diverse subjects which were sent to Anderson by friends and the general public throughout his life. Among the photos are studio portraits and government agency portraits of Anderson, his family, and prominent acquaintances. The series also contains one reproduction photo and two original cartes de visite, ca. 1865, of Major Robert Anderson, Civil War soldier and West Point graduate (unrelated to Robert B. Anderson). Some topics of interest covered in the series include the founding of Eisenhower Fellowships, diplomacy regarding the Panama Canal Treaties, the launch of the USS Nautilus, nuclear testing, the yacht USS Sequoia, the 1953 trailer for the movie, “Victory at Sea,” and Anderson's participation in the Freemasons. Many photos are related to Anderson's interests in economic development, international trade, mines and mineral resources, oil industries, banks and banking, and real property. A photograph album in the series, which was given to Anderson by the Finance Minister of India, contains many scenes related to the economy of that country. Organizations appearing in the series include the Atlantic-Pacific Interoceanic Canal Study Commission, the American Petroleum Institute, and the National Security Industrial Association. Locations featured include the Pentagon, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, the Naval Air Special Weapons Facility at Kirtland Air Force Base (N.M.), the Naval Air Missile Test Center at Point Mugu (Calif.), Camp Pendleton (Calif.), the Naval Photographic Center, the Nevada Proving Ground of the Atomic Energy Commission, Tempelhof Central Airport in Berlin, Mesa Verde National Park, All Hallows by-the-Tower Church in London, the Sam Rayburn Library in Bonham (Tex.), and locations in Hawaii, Greece, the Hague, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Morocco, Taiwan, and Turkey.
