Levy, David C. [info:lc/authorities/names/nr00037820]


David C. Levy graduated from Columbia College in 1960 and joined the admissions staff of Parsons School of Design the following year. He was eventually promoted to Director of Admissions, and became Vice President of Parsons during a budgetary crisis that resulted in Parsons' affiliation with the New School for Social Research in 1970. Levy served as dean of Parsons from 1970 until 1989, when he was appointed to serve concurrently as chancellor of the New School for Social Research and chancellor of the arts for The New School. Levy left The New School in 1991 to become director of the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
