He did not graduate but received an Honorable Mention in 1937 for a class in architecture and one Faculty Honorable Mention for the 1938-39 academic year. Teague is best known as a partner in the industrial design firm of Painter, Teague & Petertil in Chicago. He later left that office to start his own firm, Jim Teague/Design, from his home at 443 Webster Avenue in Chicago, where he produced product, packaging, and graphic designs for a wide range of clients.

The collection consists of a presentation portfolio and miscellaneous professional papers, printed materials, product samples and photographs relating to graphic and industrial designs by James Teague from the 1950s until his retirement.
