Open House: Treasures of the Baruch College Archives
Baruch College Archives
Be our guests for a free tour of the Baruch College Newman Library’s rare and renowned collections including the Institute of Public Administration Collection, as featured on our popular website and blog, “An Adventure in Democracy” https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/ipaprocessing/ See how John D. Rockefeller Jr., Andrew Carnegie, E.H. Harriman and fellow millionaires at the dawn of the 20th century sparked a good-government revolution that spread across America. Learn about the extraordinary mastermind of public administration, Luther Halsey Gulick III, who reorganized the White House for President Franklin D. Roosevelt, helped win WWII and led NYC into the modern age. We’ll show you how our archivists are digitizing vast portions of the collection under generous Carnegie grants, making the material readily available to students, researchers and scholars worldwide. The setting is a marvel in itself – a converted 1890’s trolley barn once home to McCLure’s Magazine and the Muckrakers.
