Artists’ and Architects’ Papers
The collection held at The Ryerson & Burnham Archives at the Art Institute of Chicago contains correspondence, writings, scrapbooks, architectural drawings and prints, business papers, photographs, slides, and other ephemera. The collection is separated by subject and measured by the number of linear feet it takes up on the shelf; ranging from .25 to well over 200.

Started by the Art Institute of Chicago’s Department of Architecture in 1983, the CAOHP set out with the goal of documenting the life and experiences of architects that have contributed to the built environment in and around Chicago.
Chicago Film Archives
