Series 3: Maps and Surveys, 1849-1996
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Series 3: Maps and Surveys, 1849-1981 contains originals and copies of maps and surveys of Princeton University land that were intended to represent the campus and other University lands as they existed. This is in contrast to maps, plans and surveys in the records of the Office of Physical Planning, which were created as part of the planning and development process and may or may not represent what actually existed. In addition to professionally produced and published maps, this series also contains several student surveys of portions of university land from the early 20th century, possibly created as part of an academic course.
Arrangement of Series 3: Maps and Surveys, 1848-1981 is loosely chronological with oversize material grouped at the end of the series.
No appraisal information is available.
