Drawings for various projects, 2002 July 2
Collection Description & Creator Information
The arrangement of the records at the time of transfer has been retained. Records relating to the same project are generally grouped together by building name or project location. Since many campus structures have been the subject of Office of Physical Planning projects on more than one occasion, they appear multiple times in the folder listing.
Though the Office of Physical Planning has deactivated, transfers of similar records from the Office of Design and Construction and other divisions in the Department of Facilities are expected in the future.
Appraisal has been conducted according to Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library guidelines. Nothing was removed from the records during 2007 processing.
The Fire Files Series, which consisted of a numbered set of oversized architectural drawings, were returned to the Office of Physical Planning in 2016.
