General note

Technical Illustration photographs (ca. 1950-1951, 47 images) are arranged together because they represent a very short-lived and particular development in Art Center’s curriculum. These images document the technical illustration courses designed during World War II with the California Institute of Technology in response to a need for easily understood equipment manuals. Although these images are post-War, the photographs highlight this temporary curriculum and include: instructor Hamilton Quick in the classroom with students; students working on technical drawings; and images of equipment and machinery possibly used as models for the illustrations.

General note
