Scope and Content Note

The John B. Snook Architectural Records Collection spans the period from 1843 to 1948 and contains architectural drawings and record books from John Butler Snook and his descendents' careers as architects in New York City. The collection is divided into two series: Architectural Drawings and Record Books.


Architectural drawings were arranged by size and then given project numbers. Most drawings are rolled and stored in boxes but a few have been flattened and are stored in folders. Projects are listed by client name, if known, and then by project name and address.
