Abstract:

The more than 360 items in this collection reflect building projects undertaken by the Goodwins that were supervised by T.A. Curtis from 1889 to 1893, including: specifications, contracts, monthly reports on work in progress sent to the Goodwins from Curtis, measurements, and comments on construction details. Buildings represented include: the Residence of Rev. Francis Goodwin, Woodside (the Goodwin family home), the Wadsworth Athenaeum, Trinity Church, a house on the corner of Brook and Fairmont Sts., the Putnam Phalanx Armory, a commercial building on the east corner of Asylum and Haynes St.(which was to be used for insurance rooms and stores), and a building on the west corner of Haynes and Pearl Sts. (possibly an addition to the famed Goodwin Building). The latter three buildings, designed by architect George Keller, formed part of the Goodwin commercial block. Contractors represented are Hiram Bissell (mason), C.B. Andrus (mason), the Barrett Bros. (carpenters), N.A. Bosworth (steam heating), and Robinson Lead Co. (plumbing and gas fittings), A. W. Scoville (builder), R.T. Oakes & Co. (electricians), and Longstaff & Hurd (general contractors).

Highlights of the collection include specifications for carpentry and ironwork for the Wadsworth Athenaeum generated by the architectural firm J.C. Cady & Co. that detail what had to be done to the existing structure to effect successful renovation; requirements for skylights, ceiling lights, windows, glass, hardware, and speaking tubes for communication between different floors; notes about suppliers that had to be used; and a bill for extra carpentry work on the Brook St. house that offers a description of its architectural detail. Many of the documents are still bundled in labeled sleeves that identify the building to which they pertain. Some of the contractors used printed billheads with illustrations of valves, boilers, pipes, and other mechanical parts.
