Record Group 2 of the Agricultural Development Council collection primarily contains Fellowship files, administrative records of the Fellowship Program, Core Program files, records of both the Regional Research and Training Program (RRTP) and the Research and Training Network (RTN) as well as conference, seminar and workshop files and papers. Of particular note, there is also a small volume of Board of Trustees files and Field Office Staff reports.
Consists of records generated by Albert Landa (1927-2008), who started in 1960 as director of Public Information and became vice president of Development and Public Relations at The New School, and then held the title of Vice President, until his retirement in 1985. The records in this collection are notable because Landa was deeply involved in a rapid expansion of the university, including its 1970 incorporation of Parsons School of Design. The collection comprises six series, representing activities related to most of the major divisions and institutes of the university. Materials relate primarily to the development of new programs, building projects, fund raising, and public relations. Some documents in this collection are restricted. Please email email@example.com for further information.
Allen Austill (1927-2016) joined The New School in 1962. In 1965, he was appointed dean of the Adult Division and in 1987, he was named chancellor of the university and held this position until his retirement in 1989. The Allen Austill records are a small but significant set of materials largely relating to Austill's activities at The New School that fell outside of his primary role as dean of the Adult Division, including new program initiatives. Some documents in this collection are restricted. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Record Group 2 documents conference and seminar planning, conference participants and papers, primarily spanning the 1970s and 1980s. Also represented are a variety of festival files focusing primarily on the Festival of India in the 1980s.
Record Group 5 is comprised of the grant administration files of the Asian Cultural Council, 1958-2007, including such files of the Asian Cultural Program of the JDR Fund which were inherited by the Council following the dissolution of the JDR Fund in 1979.
