Scope and Content Note
These Product Design Department files consist of files created by C. Martin Smith, Product Design Department Chair from 1987.
The bulk of the collection is sponsored projects and student work files. The sponsored projects (later known as Funded Educational
Projects) files document product design projects from 1994 to 2003. The student work files contain samples of sketches, product
ideas and class projects.
There are a few administrative files, consisting mainly of lists of students in product design classes. The computer files
(almost all of which are on compact disc) are mainly those created by students to support their class work and sponsored projects.
The videotape cassettes, mainly student presentations, have been individually cataloged (VID0303–VID0335). There are many
photographs, slides, and transparencies which have been removed to the photograph files. Most are slides of sponsored projects
and student work.
The collection is divided into the following series:
Series 1: Administrative Files
Series 2: Sponsored Projects
Series 3: Student Work
Series 4: Computer Files
