Ingrith Deyrup diaries and paintings

Creator : Deyrup, Ingrith Johnson

1934-1935, .25 linear feet
Ingrith Deyrup (1919-2004) was one of the daughters of Alvin Johnson, president of the New School from 1922-1946. The collection consists of a diary that Ingrith kept as a teenager, as well as six small landscape paintings. The diaries provide an intimate look at the life of a New York family deeply immersed in the cultural, artistic, and social life of Manhattan in the 1930s, and furnish a rare glimpse into the home life of the Johnson-Deyrup family through the eyes of the 15 and 16-year old Ingrith.
