0.72 Linear feet
Boxes 6-7, 13

Teaching files relate primarily to White's teaching career at Otis Art Institute from 1965-1979, including administrative records such as board and committee memoranda, reports, meeting minutes, and fundraising material; printed material related to exhibitions and other events at the institute; and material related specifically to White such as performance evaluations, course assignments, and appraisals of his teaching by students. There is also material documenting the transfer of the Otis Charter to Parsons School of Design in 1979, with a note from Frances White stating that White was asked to be the official spokesperson for the faculty and students as they developed a strategy for the school's future.
In addition to the Otis Art Institute records there is a file on a 1977 workshop White taught at the Arkansas Art Center; a file on White's appointment to Howard University from 1978-1979 including a copy of a June 1979 letter in which White states his intent to resign due to ill health; and a file containing certificates from the University of the State of New York Private Trade School Teacher's Course qualifying Charles White to teach at the Workshop School.
Series is arranged by institution. Otis Art Institute files, which form the bulk of the series, are arranged alphabetically by folder title and chronologically thereafter.
The bulk of this series has been digitized. Material not digitized includes some publications for which only covers and/or relevant pages have been digitized.
