Abstract::
This collection documents the lives, careers, and personal relationships of Edward J Wormley, noted modernist furniture designer, and Edward Crouse, Wormley's longtime partner and a professor and theater director at the University of Georgia. The collection contains the personal records of the two men, as well as material on Wormley's design-related activities. These include records of his association with Dunbar Furniture Company; client files from his private firm; correspondence and clippings involving colleagues (e.g. T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Edgar Kaufman, Gertrud and Otto Natzler, and Jack Lenor Larsen); speeches and articles; and extensive files of clippings on art, design, and architecture. The highlight of the collection is the lengthy correspondence between Wormley and Crouse, the bulk of which dates from 1925 to 1947. The collection also features letters to Crouse and Wormley from relatives and friends, 1920's-1990's; original photographs of the two men and their relatives and friends, 1890s-1990s; photographs taken on the couple's travels; travel journals and scrapbooks; appointment books, diaries, and commonplace books; and ephemera.
