Âmbito e conteúdo

The Adams family papers consist mainly of photographs of Art Center School in the early 1950s, especially of students and faculty in classroom settings. Also included are some personal photos of Tink and Virginia's 1951 wedding, their Silverlake home, and Tink with his bonsai. Most of the faculty in the Art Center photos have been identified by Virginia Adams. Of interest are the photographs of Japanese exchange students through the JETRO program, including Kenji Ekuan. Three oversized photographs are housed separately.

Adams's correspondence concerns design work he was hired to do, mainly for Sloan's Liniment package and counter display. Virginia's correspondence consists of materials sent to her as a member of Art Center's Board of Trustees. The magazine advertisements are a varied collection torn out of magazines from the early part of the 20th century. The reminiscences about Tink's house, written by his daughter, discuss the purchase and renovation of his Silverlake home.

The plaque (box 5) was presented to Adams by Japanese designers and reads: "In appreciation of Edward A. Adams' continuous interest to educate and help Japanese designers, some of whom have enrolled in the Art Center School to become leaders in the development of design in Japan. 1965" Below the inscription is a list of names that includes some Art Center alumni.
