This guide provides an overview to architectural records available in Special Collections.
The architectural records document the designed environment in Arkansas and house the collections of Architects and Landscape Architects with significant connections to the state. The Fay Jones Collection and the Edward Durell Stone papers are two of the most extensive and sought-after architectural collections. Mid - 20th century architecture is a strength of the Archives, however, the collections also include materials such as the work of Neil Hamill Park, Little Rock Landscape Architect and winner of the prestigious 1931 Prix de Rome in Landscape Architecture, and photographs documenting the vernacular architecture of Arkansas by internationally recognized photographer Geoffery Winningham. The collections are diverse in content, containing models, drawings, photographs, and periodicals in addition to correspondence.
The architectural records are available Monday through Friday 8:30 - 4:30. Appointments are recommended but not required.
Additional books and other resources related to architecture and the design disciplines are available in Special Collections Rare Book Collection and the Fine Arts Library.
