Descriptive Summary

Creator: New-York Historical Society.
Title: New-York Historical Society audiovisual media records
Dates: 1974-2002
Abstract: The New-York Historical Society audiovisual media records primarily include videocassettes and audiocassettes from the late 1980s to early 1990s. N-YHS’s lectures, panel discussions and concerts organized around the “Why History?” theme (1990-92) and programs connected to the bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution (1987) are especially well-documented, though many other presentations in video or audio format are also included. Audiotapes include training for docents and N-YHS education staff concerning particular N-YHS exhibitions and gallery installations. The record group is currently restricted because of the lack of appropriate playback equipment and the fragility of the tapes.
Quantity: 12.13 Linear feet in nine record cartons and eight document boxes.
Call Phrase: NYHS-RG 28
Sponsor: This record group was processed as part of the 2015-2016 N-YHS Institutional Archives project, made possible by a generous grant from the Leon Levy Foundation.
