Membership file contains membership application, chapter transfer, notification of Fellowship. In this era, Fellowship nominations were routinely returned to the nominee, so his nomination is not in the AIA Archives.
The AIA Awards files include his Gold Medal nomination (the accompanying photographs and copies of articles were not scanned); the press release about his receiving the Gold Medal; his Gold Medal acceptance speech; and publicity and arrangements for the acceptance (not scanned). The firm Mitchell/Giurgola received the Architectural Firm Award from the AIA in 1976, and there is additional material relating to that award.
