 Creator:  Pahlmann, William C., 1900-1987 
 Notes:  This series includes full texts of speeches, notes, scripts and other materials related to William Pahlmann's speaking engagements and public appearances from 1938 to 1975. Pahlmann maintained a full schedule of public engagements, particularly in the 1950s and 1960s, addressing audiences of professionals, students and women's organizations throughout the United States. He also appeared on numerous radio and television programs to present design issues to a wider audience. Principal topics include the relationship between the architect and interior designer, the development of good taste, interior design as the expression of one's personality and interests, the tension between modern and traditional design, and the place of good taste and personal display in the "affluent society" of the time. Pahlmann also spoke to students in design schools and on the proper display of home furnishings on departments store floors and in show windows. Subseries II includes a manuscript of Henry Heydenryk's "The Right Frame," for which Pahlmann wrote the foreword. The work deals with the importance of art in the home. Subseries IV includes an l.p. vinyl recording of "A Bird in Hand," a speech given by Pahlmann to the National Home Fashions League in San Francisco on January 30, 1963. The speech is in the form of a dialogue between Pahlmann and an imaginary "Gretchen."
