Scope and Contents

The reports in this collection contain site histories, renderings, floor plans, and photographs of architectural and interior features for five significant Manhattan locations: the Hotel Pennsylvania at 401 Seventh Avenue, designed by architects McKim, Mead and White (completed 1919); three McKim, Mead and White buildings on Columbia University's Morningside Heights campus—Chandler Hall (1926-1928), Faculty House (1923), and Pupin Hall (1925-1926)—and the former Sheffield Farms Stable at 3229 Broadway, designed by architect Frank A. Rooke (built 1903-1909). The reports document the physical appearance and condition of each building before planned alterations or demolition occurred.

Arrangement
