The R. Thomas Schorer papers consist of correspondence, clippings, and cartoons from his time at Art Center as a faculty member and Trustee, 1980s-1990s. The correspondence, much of it photocopies, are letters and memos about Art Center from faculty, administrators, and the Board, including those documenting student unrest over rising tuition and costs. Of note are Virginia Legakes Adams's letters addressed to President David R. Brown and the Board giving her opinions on the state of the school.
Also included in this collection are political cartoons that have been photocopied and altered to comment on the Art Center administration and clippings from Los Angeles area publications about Schorer, Art Center, and its alumni. There are a few memorials for former Art Center faculty, as well as black and white photographs of Schorer and fellow Art Center faculty members Jim Jordan and Wally Bennett.
