Drawing, Simon Atkinson, 2001: A Space Odyssey, EVA Pod

National Air and Space Museum
Arthur C. Clarke is perhaps most well known for his collaboration with director Stanley Kubrick on the 1968 film classic "2001: A Space Odyssey." Author Piers Bizony found inspiration in 2001, resulting in his 1994 book "2001: Filming the Future". As part of that effort, Bizony enlisted artist Simon Atkinson to prepare this drawing of one of the film's iconic spacecraft, the EVA Pod.

To honor Clarke, Bizony and Atkinson presented him with the drawing, autographing it on the reverse.

The Museum acquired Clarke’s personal papers and select memorabilia in 2014.

Alexander Humphreys Woollcott

National Portrait Gallery
Born Colts Neck Township, New Jersey

From 1933 to 1938, radio’s "Town Crier" opened his CBS radio program by ringing a bell and shouting "Hear ye, hear ye. . . . This is Woollcott speaking." What followed was a mélange of gossip about show business and literature that drew on Woollcott’s position as a New York Times drama critic, New Yorker columnist, and member of the Algonquin Round Table of wits. Woollcott was a larger-than-life personality, and his "Town Crier" program won a large following because he was such an animated storyteller. He became the inspiration for Sheridan Whiteside, the main character in George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s play The Man Who Came to Dinner, and he even starred in the role himself. One critic said that he "can persuade you there are truffles on his tonsils." In January 1943, Woollcott had a heart attack while broadcasting and collapsed at the microphone; he died four hours later.

Ralph M. Atkinson

National Museum of American History
Oil on illustration board. Portrait of Sergeant Ralph M. Atkinson depicted as belonging to 167th Infantry, 42nd Division. A white man, Sergeant Atkinson has brown hair and blue eyes. He is wearing a olive drab M1916 shirt (as the collar is sticking out). It is possible that the shirt is actually being worn under a tunic since it is said that insignia and medals are not sewn or worn on the shirt, but the tunic. Sergeant Atkinson is wearing brown overseas cap with an "ALA" insignia representing Alabama on the front left side of the hat. A rainbow shoulder patch is seen representing the 42nd division. He is wearing a Distinguished Service Cross military ribbon on his left chest. Two downward chevrons are seen on the end of his left arm sleeve indicating at least a year of service overseas.
