Summary:

These records were created by a succession of Public Affairs staff in the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. Arthur Lindo succeeded Isaballe Silverman as Public Information Manager around 1986.

In 1990 Raphoon assumed the dual title of Membership Coordinator and Special Events Coordinator. In 1993 Lindo was briefly succeeded as Public Affairs Officer by Gwen Loeffler, who was replaced on November 1, 1993, by Barbara Livenstein.

Exhibit publicity files include object photographs; copies of exhibit labels; correspondence with media and the public; press clippings; production information for brochures, press kits, and other publications; information on events related to the exhibit, such as press walk-throughs and gallery tours; and media mailing list information. The records also contain production files for the Museum newsletter from 1979 to 1993, and copies of the newsletter from 1991 to 1994.
