  • Scope and Contents Note

    This addendum primarily consists of photographs of Pauline Trigére, her family, and her business life, produced from the 1920s to approximately 1990, with the bulk originating from the 1960s to 1980s. Some are undated. A number involve family members, especially Jean-Pierre Radley, her elder son and depicted at parties and other social events. Many of the images are portraits of Pauline Trigére herself, seemingly taken for both personal and promotional use. The addendum also includes a lookbook, featuring sketches and photographs of her Fall 1992 designs, and fabric swatches related to the designs. A few miscellaneous items from company marketing and her personal life are additionally present. This addendum is unprocessed.

  • Arrangement Note

    Materials were kept in the order in which they were received.

  • Processing Information

    All materials were foldered and labeled. Materials in the 1992 lookbook were originally housed in a binder that was acidic and damaged. The sketches and photographs were removed and housed sequentially in forty seven folders in Box 1 and Box 2. The lookbook's label was removed and placed in the first folder.
