Drawing, Design for the Interior of the Civil Service Travel Bureau, March 12, 1953
This is a Drawing. It was designed by Henry Dreyfuss Associates. It is dated March 12, 1953 and we acquired it in 1993. Its medium is black, blue, turquoise color pencil on tracing paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
This is one of a group of drawings proposed for acquisition that document work by the Dreyfuss firm during the postwar years, for clients including Royal Typewriter (1944–45), New York Central Railroad (mid-1940s), RCA (1946–55), National Supply Co. (1949–58), and Cities Service (1951–62).
A number of the finished drawings correspond to prototypes or other documentation held in Cooper-Hewitt’s Dreyfuss archives, including those for RCA radio/phonograph and television consoles, and two beautiful drawings for Bell Telephone Laboratories of public phone booths.
