AboutAllen Austill (1927-2016) joined The New School in 1962. In 1965 he was appointed dean of the Adult Division and remained in this position for most of his career at the institution. In 1987, he was named chancellor of the university and held this position until 1989, when he retired. The Allen Austill records are a small but significant set of materials largely relating to Austill's participation at The New School in activities that fell outside of his primary role as dean of the Adult Division, including new program initiatives and the administration of Parsons School of Design in the decade after it became part of The New School.
