Hotel Files

At the core of this trove of ephemera is the 1945 bequest of George B. Corsa, a real estate broker who specialized in Manhattan hotel properties. His files contain brochures, floor plans, postcards, and articles clipped from hotel trade publications (1910s–1940s). The Library staff has augmented Corsa’s collection with newly-created files and more recently acquired material. Click here for a list of the 500+ files in the Corsa Hotel Collection.
