This week, the New School Archives and Special Collections announced that “Over seven thousand text, audio and moving image documents” have now been added to the Digital Public Library of America. The New School Archives & Special Collections documents the rich histories of the New School, Parsons and Mannes, with particularly strong collections in the areas of design history and the intellectual and cultural history of Greenwich Village.
Here are some highlights:
- A 1964 American Race Crisis lecture series featuring Martin Luther King, Jr.
- Nearly comprehensive course catalogs dating back to 1912
- Weekly bulletins announcing events at the New School from the 1940s to 1970s
- Historical photograph collections from Parsons, Mannes and the New School
- Student newspapers from the 1960s through 2007 and other newsletters
- Design collections including the René Bouché fashion illustrations, Bea Feitler papers, papers of architect and designer Giuseppe Zambonini
We are extremely pleased to see the rich history and resources of The New School now more accessible than ever.
