Sue VerHoef, Senior Archivist from the Atlanta History Center, will conduct a presentation on the resources available for construction materials research as it pertains to Atlanta's historic homes, neighborhoods and commercial districts.  

The Kenan Research Center maintains a significant collection of architectural drawings produced by prominent Atlanta firms. The collection includes approximately 3,750 jobs dating from 1823 to 1996. The majority of the structures illustrated in the collection were built in Atlanta. Other Georgia towns, however, such as Augusta, Decatur, Griffin, and Macon, are also represented. Some drawings depict buildings in other southern states such as Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.  Noteworthy collections include the works of Bodin & Lamberson; Frazier & Bodin; Hentz, Reid, & Adler; Hentz, Adler & Shutze; Ivey and Crook; James Means; Leila Ross Wilburn; and Norris & Lynch. Files may include renderings of facades, floor plans, cross sections, and many other design elements.
