October 2012 American Archives Month: Catalog Covers

In celebration of October as American Archives Month, Connelly Library will be sharing a series of posts to highlight material from Moore’s Archives. The Moore College of Art and Design Archives documents the history of the college as well as the work and activities of our faculty and alumnae/i.

Moore’s Archives holds a collection of course catalogs dating back to 1854. This slideshow of the catalog covers shows the college’s transformation from Philadelphia School of Design for Women, to Moore Institute of Art, and finally to Moore College of Art & Design.

Interested in viewing more materials or using the Archives for your research? Patrons are granted access to the Archives by appointment. Contact Joelen Pastva, Cataloging & Metadata Librarian at 215-965-4055 or jpastva@moore.edu to schedule an appointment.

Some date back as far as the mid-1800s through present day. The artists are largely alumni or faculty of Moore College. The selections you see above are ca. 1920, painted by members of the Philadelphia 10, a prominent group of woman artists who worked and exhibited together regularly. #artschool #librariesofinstagram #philadelphia #womenartists #oilpaintings
