Proceedings of the Board of Regents Meeting – September 21, 1973

About the Project

The Cooper-Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum is the only museum in the U.S. exclusively about both historic and contemporary design. That design-focus extends to the museum’s building, the historic Carnegie Mansion, which re-opened to the public in 1976.

The road to the re-open took quite some time, however, as documented in this set of Board of Regents minutes from September 1973. A few years before the museum’s opening, the Board was focused on the renovation process and all the details that came along with it.
