George Calderaro New School Office of Communications records

Creator : Calderaro, George

1995-2005, 15.6 linear feet
These files primarily document what is often referred to as The New School's "founding division" degree and continuing education programs. They were created, received by, or transferred to George Calderaro during his time as director of The New School Communications Office. Some records pre-date Calderaro. This may be because they were transmitted to Calderaro as historical reference materials, or the files were transferred from his predecessor's Nancy Pugliese's office and incorporated into Calderaro's working files. Records include binders of news clippings about The New School's departments and programs, as well as print advertising campaign documentation, and sample publicity materials. Office files, organized topically, include clippings (originals and photocopies); correspondence in the form of letters, memoranda, and printed e-mail messages; and sample printed materials, such as brochures, postcards, press releases, and programs. Files may pertain to general New School-related advertising and publicity materials or those produced to promote a particular event, such as an open house, or a series of events, such as the annual Gay and Lesbian Film Festival or a specific program such as the Institute for Retired Professionals or the Vera List Center for Art and Politics.
