Part of George Jergenson papers
This book contains clippings, correspondence, brochures, and photographs related to Jergenson's professional organizations, The Society of Art Center Alumni, an Art Center trip to Europe, and student projects. The section on professional organizations begins with a handwritten brief history of industrial design societies, especially S.I.D. and IDI, and his participation in them over the years. In 1959, he and Strother MacMinn travelled to Norway, Sweden, England, Italy, and France on behalf of the Industrial Design Department and the trip is documented with correspondence and photos. Much of the images of student work are clippings from Art Center catalogs, but also included are photos of Jergenson teaching classes. Of special interest are photographs of students building and testing watercraft for the 1961 Catalina Project.
