Typed research notes prepared by Nancy Love covering
the period between 1878 and 1952 are based on Elsie Bronson's manuscript ("RISD: A
Half-Century Record, 1878-1928," 1932) as well as catalogues, yearbooks,
correspondence, and corporate/administrative records. Narrative reports provide
information about the development of Departments, Divisions, and Administrative
offices, 1945-1950. The materials in this collection were gathered in preparation
for the RISD's 75th Anniversary.
