Scope and content

This scrapbook contains publicity, mostly newspaper and magazine clippings, about the Train of Tomorrow and Art Center. The Train of Tomorrow section covers 1945-1984 (bulk 1945-1947), and includes an inaugural luncheon program, a booklet listing industrial partners, and a full-color, 16-page brochure. The Art Center section covers 1949-1966 and includes clippings from magazines (general interest stories and scholarship contests), an article about the early General Electric project, plus a few letters to Jergenson. Of interest is a photograph of Battista Pininfarina and a handwritten anecdote about his 1964 visit to Art Center.
