  • US NNFIT SC.105
  • collection
  • 1936-1977

This collection consists of sketches, shoe patterns, embellishments, photographs, promotional materials, scrapbooks, and metal stamps from women's footwear company Seymour Troy Originals. The majority of the collection is undated, although it is estimated that most of it is from the 1930s and 1940s. At least one piece of promotional material is from yrto, and there is a scrapbook cover stamped with yrto. Previous documentation of the collection noted that some sketches were by other designers for Seymour Troy, and specifically named Emery Blau, Al Lewis, and "Cohen." It appears that the collection was added to after Seymour Troy's death, as there are at least two sketches dated 1977.
