About

The three series within this collection represent the activities of the office responsible for fund raising and alumni relations at The New School in the 1970s and 1980s, particularly with regard to special events. The collection largely documents events related to various New School divisions across a range of subject-matter, with a particular focus on functions hosted by Jonathan F. Fanton, who was installed as New School president in 1982. Materials include invitations and announcements to award, sponsor and trustee dinners, dedications, and alumni receptions, as well as planning memoranda, post-event reports, lists of attendee and board prospects, and year-end wrap-ups. The records appear to have been maintained by directors Marvin Rich and Kevin McMahon and associate director Michael Janiak, and by manager of Special Events, Linda Palmieri, and associate director of Development for Parsons School of Design, Alfred Szymanski.
