Art Center Wives Club records

  • RG 18
  • Collection
  • 1956-1977

Newsletters, minutes, correspondence, photographs, and other materials document the planning activities, events and meetings of the Art Center Wives Club. The majority of the documents is the club newsletters which provide information regarding the club and its members. Often the newsletters included annual schedules, membership lists, and synopses of meeting minutes. The second largest group of materials is minutes and mostly mirrors what can be found in the newsletters. Correspondence includes letters to the general membership, thank you notes, and invitations to Art Center Wives Club events such as the new student reception and an Annual Student Faculty party. Guidelines and suggestions for how to run meetings, program schedules, and questionnaires sent to the members all provide additional insight into the club’s activities. A play script written by a club member and performed for new students, is a humorous look at the wives’ view of their husbands’ experiences at Art Center. Two photographs also document the women working on the play.

Accreditation records

  • RG 20
  • Collection
  • 1959-2010

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).
