John G. Alden Design 347
 

After 99 years in business, the Alden design firm closed in 2008 and the plans were donated to the Hart Nautical Collection of MIT Museum. Most of the collection was cataloged and scanned by the Alden holding company under the direction of Niels Helleberg, a designer at Alden since 1971. Helleberg continued providing design and print services until closing his office in January 2014.

Important Announcement

In preparation for the move to a new museum facility the MIT Museum is temporarily closed. We regret that we will not be able to provide additional in-person or digital access to the Alden plan archive until Summer 2022. While we are excited about our new home, we understand that this presents serious difficulties to boat owners and researchers alike; there is no other way to pack and safely relocate this wonderful collection in its new home without this closure. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
