The New School Associates were the first fund raising body associated with the university. Comprised of faculty, former students (including Marlon Brando), school administration and supporters of the school's aims, "the Associates" sponsored numerous educational and social events and an annual membership drive. These records represent the administration of the Associates from the mid-1940s to approximately 1960, although some later art exhibition records will be found here as well. Files belonging to the Executive Secretary of the New School Associates, Edith Jonas Levy, constitute much of the record group.
