Descriptive Entry:
These materials were accumulated over time in the Library of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum (CHM). Most were produced before the Cooper Union Museum was transferred to the Smithsonian Institution in 1968, and some predate the establishment of the Museum itself in 1896. The publications include an incomplete series of Cooper Union annual reports beginning with the fifth report published in 1864. The series ends with an excerpt from the Smithsonian Institution annual report for fiscal year 1969, in which the Cooper-Hewitt Museum was first listed as a bureau of the Institution.

The materials also contain volumes one through three of the Chronicle of the Museum for the Arts of Decoration of the Cooper Union; biographical information about significant figures in the Museum's history; checklists, descriptions, and essays based on the Museum's collections; reports by the Director, Treasurer, and Secretary of the Council for the Cooper Union Museum from 1907 to 1927; texts of talks given at the Museum; and histories of the Museum written by staff members.
