Scope and content

Linda R. Lewis is Professor Emeritus in the School of Fashion at Ryerson University. Lewis earned her Bachelor of Interior Design from the University of Manitoba. She began her career at Ryerson in 1969 in the Department of Photographic Arts, where she taught until 2004, when she became a faculty member and Chair of the School of Fashion. During her tenure at Ryerson, Lewis lectured in design, art history and film theory and also served as Director of the Film Studies program. She has written extensively about design and has been recognized by the community as a design advocate. She was the founding President of the Design Exchange, Toronto, and remains involved with the organization as a member of the Collection Committee. In 2009, she was appointed a leader of the National Design Policy Committee, an initiative led by Design Exchange in partnership with Canadian associations, universities seeking to establish a design policy at the federal government level. Lewis retired to Emeritus status in 2010. After her retirement, the School of Fashion established the Linda Lewis Award in recognition of student excellence in fashion design history, design theory, communication design and fashion design.

Fonds consists of books, committee documents, and curriculum records authored or co-authored by Lewis, as well as one photograph and one exhibition poster.
