Paula Grcevic collection

 Collection — Box: 1
Identifier: RITDSA-0074

Scope and Contents

The Paula Grcevic collection contains materials relating to Deaf culture collected by the donor. Folder 1 contains periodicals from the 1980s and 1990s. During that time there was an exchange program between a Russian institution and NTID, and these materials may have been collected in conjunction to that. The content of this material has not been verified by the archivists, as most of it is in russian.

The second folder contains information about the Dyer Arts Center, and includes digital materials of several art exhibitions and panels which took place in 2006 and 2007.

Folder 3 contains clippings and a statement in response to a scandal about the Gallaudet presidential search in 2006.
