The Metropolitan Museum of Art Archives is pleased to announce that transcripts of oral history interviews conducted with one former Museum Trustee and three former staff are now open for scholarly research. The interviewees are:
Roswell L. Gilpatric (Trustee, 1964-1984; Trustee Emeritus, 1984-1996)
Clare Le Corbeiller (Curator, 1967-2000)
Harry S. Parker III (Vice Director for Education, 1971-1973)
James Parker (Curator, 1954-1993)
In 1993 the Museum embarked on a program to create an oral history of the institution as seen through the eyes of those people who know it well and have helped to shape it. Transcripts of additional interviews in this series will be made available to qualified researchers over time, consistent with restrictions established by the interviewees and as the processing schedule of the Archives permits.
Please send requests for access, along with a brief summary of the research project, an outline of sources already consulted and a curriculum vitae or resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
