J. Paul Getty Trust Press Releases and Public Outreach Materials
Series I. Chronological press releases, 1954-1959, 1973-2019 2.8 Linear Feet (5 boxes) 0.73 GB (2,044 files)
These press releases in hardcopy and digital format document events that the J. Paul Getty Trust wished to publicize to media outlets, and date from 1954 to 1959 and 1973 to 2019. The press releases, intended to promote Getty activities, were distributed to journalists and other members of the media by the J. Paul Getty Museum (1954-1982), the Department of Public Affairs (1983-1999), and the Communications Department (2000-present). Also present are media advisories, event calendars, and memos. Of note are the J. Paul Getty Museum 1954 opening press release, transcriptions of news articles regarding the opening that were published in local media outlets, opening day remarks, and event flow for the opening day reception.
Topics include acquisitions; administration; awards, including Getty Medal recipients; building projects; collaborative projects; cultural property conservation and restoration; exhibitions; grant awards; logistical advisories; organizational initiatives; publication announcements; public and scholarly events; senior personnel and board of trustees appointments; and others. All Getty programs, including those no longer in operation, are represented. It is uncertain if any press releases exist from 1960 to 1972.
A portion of press releases dating 2000-2006 were received in digital (.pdf) format; hardcopy duplicates may also be present. Press releases received 2014 and after are exclusively in digital (.pdf) format. Duplicate press releases may also appear in Series II. Press releases, subject files and Series III. Press kits.
While the number of press releases is extensive, it is not presumed to be a comprehensive collection, except from 2016 to 2019.
Organization
The records are arranged into three sections: J. Paul Getty Museum, J. Paul Getty Trust, and J. Paul Getty Trust, digital materials. Records are arranged in chronological order, and chronological order by program.
Press releases dating 1954-1959, 1973-2004, and a partial set dating 2005-2006 have been digitally scanned to a repository for access. None of the records dating 2007-2008 have been scanned. Links to access copies appear beneath the folder titles in the inventory.
Digital press releases materials originating from the J. Paul Getty Trust, 2000-2019 are arranged in chronological order by program. Digital preservation requirements necessitate the bundling and processing of records by accession, so records are displayed in sets according to accession number and are not necessarily in strict chronological order. As a result date ranges prior to 2016 may be duplicated in the inventory headings instead of integrated under a single heading. Records dated 2016 and after are inventoried exclusively for that year. Note that some records may duplicate those found in the paper records press materials in this series, and in Series II. Press releases, subject files and Series III. Press kits.
Access to digital files in 2014.IA.16, 2015.IA.03,2016.IA.03, 2017.IA.03, 2018.IA.03, and 2019.IA.03 is available online through the links provided in the inventory.
