The drawings of Russell W. Porter in the Caltech Archives represent only a small portion of his output, but they range over a variety of subjects from his California period, beginning in 1928. The works have been divided into series and subseries; for example, building designs for Caltech are further subdivided for individual structures. Highlights of the collection include original design proposals for the 200-inch telescope mount, in both schematic and three-dimensional/cutaway form, plus a series of drawing of Hale's spectrohelioscope. Some of Porter's military drawings are also represented, as well as miscellaneous drawings of Caltech engineering projects such as the Hydrodynamics Laboratory
