NYSID Establishes Interior Design Archives

17 December, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell


The New York School of Interior Design has formed the NYSID Interior Design Archives, a repository of primary source material from the profession. The school established the archives after recognizing that many interior design records were not being preserved.  

“While designers’ papers are found in the collections of other institutions due to individual affiliations, they do not and cannot provide the singular scholarly lens that NYSID is able to use in processing and making accessible the records of interior design to a broader audience,” NYSID president David Sprouls said in a statement.

Highlights of the archives, which are housed within the NYSID Library, include materials from Yale Burge Antiques and Interiors; the Joseph Grusczak and William DeGraff Collection; and the Neal A. Prince Collection, director of interior design for InterContinental Hotels from 1961-1986. The archives also contain NYSID records comprising catalogs, photos, and other documentation from the college’s 97-year history.
