Eero Saarinen was born in Kirkkonummi, Finland, on August 20, 1910. His father, the architect Eliel Saarinen, and his family moved to Michigan in 1921. After receiving a B.F.A. in Architecture from Yale University in 1934, Saarinen joined his father’s firm (Saarinen, Saarinen and Swanson) and began work as an architect. After his father’s death in 1950, Saarinen began to make a name for himself as an architect, started his own firm (Eero Saarinen and Associates), and established a reputation as a prolific, innovative and versatile designer. Saarinen died suddenly of a brain tumor at the age of 51 on September 1, 1961.
The collection includes drawings, photographs, correspondence, writings, clippings, and audio-visual material relating to Saarinen’s professional work as an architect, as well as a small amount of personal material created by himself, his wife, Aline Saarinen, and his father, Eliel Saarinen.
