Photocopy of a seven-page history of The New School's General Seminar, a forum in which social sciences faculty presented their research to their peers, students, and invited guests. Vidich chronicles the history of the General Seminar, from its creation by New School President Alvin Johnson in the 1930s to its decline and eventual disappearance in the 1970s. The last date mentioned in the body of the manuscript is 1980. However, someone has inscribed the year "1991" in pen on the document's final page.
