Archival Buildings File

Buildings A-F | Buildings G-L | Buildings M-R | Buildings S-Z


The Archival Buildings File includes print and ephemeral materials relating to the history and description of buildings on the University of Chicago campus and the surrounding community. The first section of the file contains materials on general campus architecture and planning, including guides and maps, articles, and souvenir booklets. Following these are files for individual buildings, including programs for groundbreaking ceremonies, cornerstone layings, and dedications, as well as promotional brochures, press releases, and articles and reports from various sources. Since some buildings have been known by more than one name, researchers should check the listing for possible alternate headings.
