Art and Architecture Project Files, 1876-2016

Scope and content:

This series is divided into specific projects, whose files typically contain correspondence, clippings, notes, photographs, slides, interviews, printed materials and other administrative files chiefly pertaining to Diamonstein-Spielvogel's television programs, books, and exhibits whose theme focused mainly on architecture as livable art, predominantly in New York and the United States. Some of the materials also speak to Diamonstein-Spielvogel's strong interest in adaptive reuse and historic preservation.

Materials with earliest dates are from newspaper clippings or copies of clippings used in research. Similar materials pertaining to specific projects, organizations or other activities are included with those materials in other series in the collection; however, a small amount may be present throughout this section.

Numerous interviews and program clips corresponding to these manuscript materials are located in the Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel Audiovisual Materials Collection.
