Description: This is a three page correspondence from the Project Director of the Smithsonian Institute to the Public Relations Director of the Department of Sanitation requesting a photograph of a White Wing with a carry can and hand broom. The photograph requested is noted as "neg. 491." The second page of the correspondence is a copy of the Letter of Agreement between Marsha Santos, of the Department of Public Affairs, DSNY, and a company called IND-EX (Independent Exhibitions) that is corresponding with the DSNY on behalf of the Smithsonian Institute. The letter formally requests permission to use the DSNY photograph in an exhibit entitled "Rotten Truth (About Garbage)." The third page of correspondence is a photocopy of the picture in question giving the dimensions, "6x10." There is writing on all three pages that appears to be made post-receipt of said letter by the DSNY.
