      Membership file contains membership application, correspondence about Institute activities and dues, request for emeritus (retired) status, and a reprint of a 1919 speech. His Fellowship nomination was approved by the AIA Board of Directors in 1927. The process of submitting written nomination forms to a jury began in 1928, so there is no Fellowship nomination data for him.
