Administrative records

Documents describing the planning, formation, and implementation of various oral history projects administrated by the FIT Library and other FIT departments. Includes meeting minutes, class documents from John Touhey's oral history studies, histories, and documentation. Bulk of the content relates to the Oral History Project of the Fashion Industries series within the Oral History collection.

FIT Oral histories project

This oral history collection contains close to 400 interviews of prominent 20th-century fashion industry insiders, including Ralph Lauren, Liz Claiborne, Princess Grace of Monaco, and Vera Maxwell, as well as members of the FIT faculty and staff. This collection of in-depth interviews with individuals in every segment of the fashion business creates a broad historical record that is drawn directly from the knowledgeable, informal, and often colorful verbalization of its practitioners. FIT's Oral History Project is a unique record of facts, ways and means, points of view, practice and personality that could be preserved in no other way.
