The Kellen Design Archives has many collections available for researchers who want to examine archival documents pertaining to interior design. This guide lists the collections under four categories, although there is often cross-over from one category to the next.



The Kellen Design Archives documents the history of Parsons back to its founding in 1896 by collecting materials produced by faculty, students, former students, and associates of Parsons. Because Parsons has been such an important design school for so long, and so many important figures in the design universe have either gone to school here, or taught here (or both), the Kellen collections can open a window onto many 20th (and 21st) century design practices, trends and changes.


We created this guide to help interior design researchers find Kellen Design Archives collections easily. Not all of our collections are in Bobcat yet, but they are all included in this guide.
