Scope and content

This scrapbook covers Jergenson's freelance career as well as a trip to Japan for Art Center. Photographs, handwritten notes, and advertisements document the many projects he worked on including appliances, automobiles (American Motor Co.), airplanes (Pan Am), boats (Outboard Marine Co.), and advertising. In 1956, Jergenson travelled to Japan with Tink Adams and John Coleman to advise on the design of export items. They visited over 30 factories in six and a half weeks. Photos of the trip are accompanied by an itinerary, student lists, a Kabuki program, and a brochure for the Suehiro Grill in Tokyo. Also included are photographs of notable designers visiting Art Center.
