Collection Description & Creator Information
Alphabetical subject files are followed by general architectural reference, then clippings on Candela and his work.
- Custodial History
Prior to their move to the Special Collections, the Félix Candela Papers were housed at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, where they were used as research materials for Maria Garlock and David Billington's book, Félix Candela: Engineer, Builder, Structural Artist (Princeton University Art Museum, 2008). Maria Garlock facilitated Dorothy Candela's donation of these materials to Princeton University beginning in 2006-2007, as an addition to what was then referred to as the Maillart Archives.
All materials were retained during 2014 processing, with the exception of a blank internal hard drive, which was discarded.
