Scope and Contents
This collection consists mainly of records originating in practitioners' offices that came to the archive indirectly, through third parties, individually, or in small batches. The collection also includes a small number of artifacts from razed or remodeled buildings. Records of Ball State University buildings and grounds are not included but instead are in the BSU- (Ball State Properties) collection.
Architectural working drawings comprise the bulk of the collection. Generally these are in the form of prints, though for some buildings the archive holds original tracings or linens. The collection also includes design and presentation drawings, renderings, specifications and project manuals, photographs, planning reports, feasibility studies, proposals, pamphlets, and brochures. A few documents of other types appear as well, such as deeds, contracts, permits, and correspondence.
- ca. 1840s-present
