Scope and Content

The material in this collection consists of architectural and landscape plans relating to the Malcolm Price Laboratory School and the surrounding area.  These plans do not stand alone as part of a Laboratory School collection.  Rather, they have been integrated into the larger collection of plans already established in the University Archives: 

Archives Record Series:  05/06/05  Landscape and Building Plans

Each plan in the Archives collection is numbered:  for example, B-147 denotes a building plan and L-108 denotes a landscape plan.  The list below is drawn together for the convenience of the researcher. The material does not exist as a separate and freestanding collection.
