This long-lived design business finally closed for good in 2008. The holding company, Tilloston Corporation, gifted the extensive Alden design archive to the Hart Nautical Collections of MIT Museum. Most of the collection was cataloged and scanned under the direction of Niels Helleberg, a designer at Alden since 1971, who also helped direct the collection to MIT. Helleberg continued providing design and print services until closing his office in January 2014. The useful Alden website and database created by Helleberg was transferred by him to MIT Museum to assist with providing continuing access to this important American design archive
