Product Design Department: Chair – Marty Smith papers

These Product Design Department files consist of files created by C. Martin Smith, Product Design Department Chair from 1987.

The bulk of the collection is sponsored projects and student work files. The sponsored projects (later known as Funded Educational Projects) files document product design projects from 1994 to 2003. The student work files contain samples of sketches, product ideas and class projects.

There are a few administrative files, consisting mainly of lists of students in product design classes. The computer files (almost all of which are on compact disc) are mainly those created by students to support their class work and sponsored projects.

The videotape cassettes, mainly student presentations, have been individually cataloged (VID0303–VID0335) and added to the Product Design video collection. There are many photographs, slides, and transparencies which have been removed to the photograph files. Most are slides of sponsored projects and student work.
