Collection Number: 2002-1. Extent: 4 boxes, 6 flat file drawers, 1 tube. The John Funk Collection spans the years 1929-1988 and is organized into three series: Personal Papers, Office Records, and Project Records. The Personal Papers include drawings and photographs of student work, architectural exhibition material collected by Funk, and photographs of Funk. The Office Records contain clippings and promotional materials about Funk's projects, along with documentation and photographs from architectural exhibitions that highlight Funk's Heckendorf House.

The Project Records include manuscript files, drawings, specifications, and photographs of projects designed by Funk between 1937 and 1985. Notable projects include the Heckendorf House, Zuckerman House, Heymes House, and his own residence in Lafayette. The collection also contains files documenting several multi-residential communities such as the Hawthorne Defense Housing project and the Ladera Housing project. The Project Records also include several commercial, educational, and medical projects, many of which were commissioned by the University of California for Davis, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco campuses.

The collection reflects Funk's collaborative efforts with architect Joseph Allen Stein (Ladera, Mayer Clinic, and Mission Medical Dental Center) and landscape architects such as Lawrence Halprin (Kirby, Maenchen, Randolph and Woerner residences), Eckbo, Royston & Williams (Funk, Gorb, Lyon, McCullough, Power, Saunders and Zuckerman residences as well as the Ladies Home Journal Model House), Douglas Baylis (Heymes residence), and Osmundson & Stanley (Hamilton and Leet residences). He also worked with notable Bay Area architectural photographers including Morley Baer (Power, Woerner and Zuckerman residences), Ernest Braun (Ladera Housing project), Roger Sturtevant (Heckendorf and Heymes residences), and his brother, Ernest Funk (Allusi, Heckendorf, Hirschfelder, Martin, and Turner residences).
