Collection of contributions from members of the ArtCenter community documenting experiences from 2020.
This collection contains oral histories with members of the ArtCenter community, conducted by the ArtCenter Archives beginning in 2013.
The Graduation Collection consists mainly of the programs and videos for each ArtCenter graduation. The programs list the graduating students (by department in later years) and the commencement speakers. The student promotional materials are cards and handouts created by the students and distributed at Grad Show. The student-produced Grad Books contain photographs of the graduating students in the spirit of a traditional yearbook, while rarely an actual book. The Graduation Posters are similar to the Grad Books with photos of the students. This collection also includes copies of commencement speeches and a few examples of ArtCenter diplomas.
Collection contains the personal and professional papers of Leah Hoffmitz Milken, including work done by Hoffmitz Milken for Letterform Design, her personal design firm; research and materials related to courses she taught at ArtCenter College of Design and other schools; and work by her students at ArtCenter and other schools.
Items in the collection are predominantly visual and include sketches of letterforms and typefaces; printing proofs; posters; photographs; and a small collection of student work on CDs. There is relatively little correspondence or original writings.
Books given as part of the original donation are not included in this description. They can be found cataloged in the online catalog at http://library.artcenter.edu/.
Hoffmitz Milken, Leah
This collection contains photographs of the Art Center campuses, including the grounds, exteriors and interiors of the buildings, and construction projects.
The Career and Professional Development records document their main programs and consist mostly of notices for guest speakers (especially the Business Dialogue Series), their On-Campus Recruitment program and internship program. The Administrative Files include two folders on courses the department offered to students to prepare them for their careers. The Annual Reports include statistics on job placement and internships. The Graduate Employment Survey tallies student responses regarding jobs and salaries after leaving ArtCenter. The Guest Speakers series contains announcements for the Business Dialogue Series and Career Chats. The Internships series contains information on companies who hired ArtCenter students as interns. The Mentorship series documents the department's mentor program called The Dot Exchange. The Recruitment files include information on companies that visit ArtCenter to hire newly graduated students.
Career and Professional Development
Accreditation reports submitted to both the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and to the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) provide a tremendous amount of insight into Art Center's curriculum, financial health, and administrative policies. Both draft and final versions of self studies detail such information as enrollment statistics, curriculum development, finances, education and experience of the faculty, and campus facilities (including the Library). In addition, reports filed by the accrediting agencies after site visits are also illuminating. The bulk of the material relates directly to Art Center, but two items are more general: an accreditation report which assesses its influences on universities and colleges in the West by Keith Warner for WASC (1977), and a directory of National Schools of Art (1978).
The Toyota Lecture collection consists of posters, videos, and audiotapes of the lectures. The Toyota Motor Corporation Endowed Lecture Program was established in 1984 through a generous $1 million endowed gift to Art Center College of Design from Toyota. The endowment was used to bring accomplished professionals working in fields directly related to Art Center's departments, as well as architects, writers, historians, critics, and social commentators, to speak on campus.
In June 2009, the name of the lecture series changed to The Big Picture.
This collection consists of documents, such as award certificates given to Archetype Press, project planning records, and open house invitations. There are some examples of student work, notably pages from an unpublished project of Robert Bly poems.
Some publications prior to 1989 are not technically from the Archetype Press, but are still included here, as precursors to similar projects that would eventually be produced by the Press and that department.
Also of note in the collection are two boxes of examples of presswork from Vern Milton Simpson Typography from the 1940s – 1970, using the same type that are at the Archetype Press.
These International Initiatives files document the programs and projects of the department, including Designmatters, from its inception in 2001. The bulk of the collection, the files of Series 2, documents Designmatters projects such as the Nyumbani village in Kenya and class sponsorships. Series 3 contains materials related to the biennial Art Center Design Conference, from initial planning to post-conference feedback. The Centro de Diseño y Arte documented in Series 4 is a Mexican art school established under the guidance of Art Center faculty and staff. Departmental computer files are on CDs in Series 5. Series 6 consists of posters advertising Designmatters programs, as well as a few of student work.
A large portion of this collection consists of administrative records related to the Ellwood building, Design Research Complex, and South Campus. Materials include meeting agendas and minutes, timelines, reports, and planning documents. Dana Hutt was included in many of the planning meetings for the Sinclaire Pavilion, South Campus and the Design Research Complex, and documents reflect her involvement.
Another large component of this collection consists of research. Dana Hutt did research on the Ellwood building at the Art Center Archives and Cal Poly Pomona Archives. Other research about the Ellwood building includes original documents from Peter Blake, who was an architect and close friend to Ellwood. The records include correspondence to Ellwood and his family, articles related to Ellwood, and an obituary on Ellwood by Blake. These records were given to Dana Hutt by Peter Blake for her research and to be kept by Art Center. At the time of her research on the Ellwood building, she was preparing to write a book on the history of the building. Research from Caltech related to the Wind Tunnel is also included in the collection.
Finally, the collection contains planning documents related to the L.A. Now book project, that Dana Hutt worked on with Richard Koshalek.

The Kenneth Staley papers are mainly his memoir that documents his experiences at Art Center before and after World War II, his involvement during the war as a rifleman, and his career at General Electric Company. Photocopies of his sketches, a photograph of himself during the war, and the original letter from Art Center confirming his enrollment (1939) are included.

The Michael Osborne stamps are two Love stamps designed by Osborne for the U.S. Post Office. The book of 2002 stamps and two envelopes with the 2004 stamps are signed by Osborne.
This collection contains documentation of various events hosted by ArtCenter. Graduation is one of the best represented events from the late 1950s - 1990s. Other events include corporate meetings, fundraising dinners, campus events like the groundbreaking and dedication for the Pasadena Hillside campus, staff parties and events, and visitor events.
The Richard Ham papers are mainly images taken by Ham of location shoots in 1941 (while he was a student) and in 1949 (while he was an instructor). Also included are articles from photography magazines on Art Center projects, Ham's memoirs, and written remembrances of Art Center and Will Connell.
Alumni Identification Card issued to Sherwin Tilton for use as a library card. The card is actually a Student Identification Card with the word "Student" crossed off and "Alumni" handwritten above it.
The Adams family papers consist mainly of photographs of Art Center School in the early 1950s, especially of students and faculty in classroom settings. Also included are some personal photos of Tink and Virginia's 1951 wedding, their Silverlake home, and Tink with his bonsai. Most of the faculty in the Art Center photos have been identified by Virginia Adams. Of interest are the photographs of Japanese exchange students through the JETRO program, including Kenji Ekuan. Three oversized photographs are housed separately.
Adams's correspondence concerns design work he was hired to do, mainly for Sloan's Liniment package and counter display. Virginia's correspondence consists of materials sent to her as a member of Art Center's Board of Trustees. The magazine advertisements are a varied collection torn out of magazines from the early part of the 20th century. The reminiscences about Tink's house, written by his daughter, discuss the purchase and renovation of his Silverlake home.
The plaque (box 5) was presented to Adams by Japanese designers and reads: "In appreciation of Edward A. Adams' continuous interest to educate and help Japanese designers, some of whom have enrolled in the Art Center School to become leaders in the development of design in Japan. 1965" Below the inscription is a list of names that includes some Art Center alumni.
Adams, Edward A.
