Preserving the Greene and Greene Architectural Archives

Hiring a consultant to conduct a preservation needs assessment for the Greene and Greene Archives, which contain three major collections of books, paintings, and other materials related to the architecture of southern California. The collections are currently stored at the Huntington Library under the supervision of the University of Southern California.

The Greene and Greene Archives, The Gamble House/USC proposes to hire one consultant to conduct a general preservation assessment of its collections and a second specialist consultant to assess audio/visual materials in the Archives. The Archives are housed at the Huntington Library. These records of the work of Charles and Henry Greene include architectural drawings; photographs from the early 1900s to the present; scrapbooks and sketchbooks; correspondence; photo albums; watercolors and oil paintings; woodworking tools; and additional artifacts and ephemera. The Archives also holds the Heineman Collection of architectural drawings and scrapbooks by Arthur and Alfred Heineman, contemporaries of the Greene brothers and prominent architects in Pasadena and Los Angeles. A third collection, the library of Esther McCoy, author on the architecture of Southern California, includes books, periodicals and ephemera.
