This database provides detailed information about the Bel Geddes papers, including project summaries and folder-level descriptions. You may search for job numbers, job titles, and keywords, including index terms compiled by Bel Geddes for his cross-reference files. This search engine is NOT case sensitive, and partial words are acceptable.

You may also use the database to request materials that you wish to view in person in the Reading and Viewing Room. To do so, you will be prompted to log in to your research account. Please note that if you are making a request from a location other than the Reading and Viewing Room, the materials will not be paged until you have contacted Performing Arts staff.

For an overview of the collection, please refer to the finding aid.
