Aaron Colish architectural records by Aaron Colish( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This collection comprises photographic materials and memorabilia (chiefly marketing brochures) related to architectural projects of Aaron Colish (1910-1997), as well as drawings not related to projects and a small amount of personal material. The bulk of the collection consists of 56 photographic prints and marketing brochures documenting seven of Colish's projects executed between 1939 and 1967. This includes his most celebrated project, the 2601 Parkway apartment building, which he designed in collaboration with Paul P. Cret. A small number of original drawings, dated 1976 appear to be illustrations for a "history of architecture" modeled on those found in Sir Bannister Fletcher's History of Architecture on the Comparative Method. Photographs by identified photographers include a 1957 portrait photograph of Colish by Fabian Bachrach and project photographs by John Gruenberg, E. Penrose, Eleanor Price, Jules Schick, Skyphotos, Jacob Stelman and Morris Worrell, Jr. This collection was assembled from materials remaining in Colish's home and office after his death by Myles D. Wilson, the executor of Colish's estate. No project-related architectural drawings, project files, office files or models which may have existed at the time of Colish's death were found at the time these materials were donated to the Architectural Archives
