The National Portrait Gallery opened to the public in 1968, but it was established in 1961 to collect portraits of people who have made important contributions to American history.
Government Documents holds a small collection of NPG general publications (call no. SI 11). They are all listed in the Voyager online catalog. Many of the gallery's publications are not distributed through the Federal Depository Library Program, so the UHM Library does not automatically receive copies of them.
