Historical Information for NTID Marketing Communications (Collapse)

The slides came from the NTID Marketing Communications department (Public Information Office during the time period encompassed by the collection). A communications department was established at NTID in 1968, with the founding of NTID on RIT's campus. The department published Focus magazine and promotional materials related to NTID's programs and services.

Mark Benjamin is the official NTID photographer and captures most of the images that tell the story of RIT/NTID. He produces pictures for websites, marketing and other publications, social media and exhibits.
