Helen Faith Keane fashion merchandising files 1926 – 1996

Collection, KA012101


Collection consists of clippings, course materials for Keane's classes at New York University's Institute of Retail Management, handwritten notes on fashion press, print publications of a vocational nature by other merchandising educators, and programs and invitations for fashion shows. Many of the clippings as well as other printed materials are heavily annotated by Keane, often emphatically and contrarily. The bulk of the collection dates from the 1970s, although the vocational publications were mostly published in the 1950s into the 1960s. The collection does not comprehensively document Keane's career, nor does it document Keane's personal life.
