Abstract:

The Cope & Stewardson Collection comprises architectural drawings and photomechanical prints documenting buildings and projects of Cope & Stewardson and its successor firm Stewardson and Page. The most numerous drawings are construction drawings, but the collection includes fine examples of design and presentation drawings. Among these is a presentation drawing of the Quadrangle Dormitories, ca. 1894, signed by Charles Z. Klauder. The collection does not contain any photographs, specifications or correspondence, nor is there any documentation for the teaching activities or personal lives of any members of the firms. The fullest holdings in this collection are drawings for buildings on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. The collection includes documentation for some later alterations and additions to buildings designed by Cope & and Stewardson and Stewardson and Page for the University of Pennsylvania. Most important are drawings (1946) for Robert Rodes McGoodwin's addition to the North Wing of the Veterinary Medicine Old Quadrangle and drawings (1953-1958) for Trautwein and Howard's final section of the Quadrangle Dormitories.

The collection does not include any drawings for buildings on any other college or university campus. Other projects represented in the collection include hospitals, commercial buildings and houses. Samuel Sloan's design for Episcopal Hospital, Philadelphia, is documented in a set of 1926 Stewardson and Page survey drawings of existing buildings. Also noteworthy are two Philadelphia commercial buildings designed by Cope & Stewardson in 1893 for Charles Custis Harrison, who later became provost of the University of Pennsylvania.
