Scope and Contents note

The collection contains letters of requests, inter-campus communication, program notes, financial bills and thank you notes dealing with community-sponsored events on the Sarah Lawrence College campus. The collection is comprised of materials from 1932 to 1987 with many of the internal documents dated during the tenure of President Harold Taylor (1945-1959). Also of note, in the beginning of the collection are three folders containing miscellaneous letters of request for facilities use, master lists of events scheduled on campus in 1932-1933 and from 1953 to 1967, and policies and procedures from the University of Washington regarding their community-sponsored events on campus. The folder of “Letters of Request” contains letters regarding events that were possibly going to occur, but did not. The folder for the “Westchester Dance Council” includes information on a performance by the Henry Street Players in 1954.
