Norman Bel Geddes Database
Job 937, Publicity - College Exhibits, 1931-1957
A number of colleges expressed interest in showing the stage designs of Bel Geddes in their exhibitions on contemporary theater. These requests were usually honored, resulting in his showing work at a number of colleges from the years 1931 to 1955. The files include exhibition catalogs for exhibitions at Harvard University, the University of Missouri, and the University of Connecticut. The catalog from the Harvard exhibit names Geddes as one of the "great trio of American designers," together with Robert Edmond Jones and Lee Simonson.
Exhibition material is also found in Exhibits (job 943).
