Scope and Content (Collapse)

The Harry Rab slide collection contains images of the RIT School of Printing Management and Sciences facilities and a script about the Institute and printing program. The slides and script were compiled with Linda Tolan (Tolan was involved in RIT recruitment), as a slide show for prospective students. Professor Rab visited various cities over a period of about two years, 1989-1990. The slides show an overview of the printing program, including facilities and major laboratories. The facilities were seen as a particular draw for potential students. In addition to the slides, the collection contains a script with information about RIT and the School of Printing Management and Sciences and two pages of notes about the slides.
