The original purpose of my research visit was to examine how communications -- with particular reference to the emergent communication technologies -- were represented in the design and decorative elements of Rockefeller Center. To this end, during my visit to the Rockefeller Archive Center, I examined relevant material in the Rockefeller Family Archives, (Record Group 2 Office of the Messrs Rockefeller, Business Interests series), giving a good deal of attention to the ideas of the philosopher, Hartley Burr Alexander, who was commissioned to develop a vision for how "Rockefeller City," as it was originally called, would be decorated.
