The American Institute of Architects Archives
      Membership file contains membership application from 1914 and related correspondence. The AIA Archives contains nothing about him from the 1870s other than the fact of his membership. The AIA did not yet use a Fellowship nomination form in 1923, so the only documentation is the announcement of the names of new Fellows in the 1923 Convention Proceedings.
