Abstract:

The archive contains correspondence files, alphabetically arranged, for the major projects undertaken by the firm, including: The World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago, 1893, for which Burnham served as chief of construction; the city plan for Washington, D.C. (1901) and for Chicago (1909); the Philippine Carnival (1911); and the reconstruction of San Francisco (1906). Correspondents include politicians, architects, sculptors and prominent civic leaders such as Charles Eliot Norton, Henry Bacon (regarding the Lincoln Memorial), Charles Moore (on the plan for Washington) and Frank Millett. The activities of the Commission of Fine Arts are particularly well-documented. Other important figures represented include Henry Clay Frick, Cass Gilbert, Frederick Law Olmsted (with a sketch of his Liberty, or America for the Grand Basin at the World's Columbian Exposition - 900203*), Augustus and Louis Saint-Gaudens, Johannes Gelert, Jules Gúerin, Thomas Hastings, Richard Morris Hunt, Philander Knox, and Lorado Taft. Writings by Burnham in the collection include a draft of a speech delivered in 1897 before the Merchant's Club of Chicago on life in Chicago, and another speech, or essay, entitled "The Appearance of the City."
