      His membership file has been scanned in two parts due to file size. Membership 1902-1932 includes his 1902 membership application; change of name; correspondence supporting and opposing his nomination for Fellowship between 1917-1931; clippings. Membership 1939-1966 includes correspondence and a very brief form for his successful Fellowship nomination in 1950-51; later correspondence concerning his retired status; letters from AIA and MIT honoring him on his 95th birthday; and an obituary clipping. The exhibits submitted with his application and his Fellowship nominations were returned to him at the time. The file contains references to some letters that are not in the AIA Archives.
