Abstract:

This collection contains professional and personal writings, published papers, correspondence, photographs, architectural records, student work, and research materials related to the academic and architectural practice of Talbot Faulkner Hamlin. The largest portion of the collection, Series 1, relates to his academic life as an architectural historian and educator from 1916, when he accepted his first position at Columbia University, until the publication of his last book, Benjamin Henry Latrobe, in 1955. This part of the collection contains correspondence, notes, records of public activities, reference files, scrapbooks, writings and lectures. Notable correspondents include William Lee Woolet, John Summerson, William Gray Purcell, Hugh Morrison, Nikolaus Pevsner, Walter Muir Whitehall, Charles Peterson, and Sigfried Giedion. This series also includes correspondence with various students and historians about the early 19th-century architect Minard Lafever, whom Hamlin was researching. Series 2 and 3 contain materials relating to the publication of two of Hamlin's books, Greek Revival Architecture in America and Benjamin Henry Latrobe, respectively, including manuscripts, drafts, notes, published papers, lectures, and illustrations used and not used.

Hamlin's career as a practicing architect was relatively brief and few architectural records from his professional practice survive. Series 4 contains drawings, files and specifications, and photographs of approximately eighty projects in United States and Asia. Projects particularly represented include Wayland Academy, Hangchow, China, 1919; Peking University, Peking, China, 1919-1922; and Ginling College, Nanking, China, 1919-1925.

Additionally, Hamlin traveled extensively and photographs that he took en route also form a significant portion of this collection. Series 5 contains photographic prints and negatives taken in many regions of the United States and in more than sixteen foreign countries. Most of the photographs record his visits to architectural sites, with a small group of images documenting his fondness for sailing during these trips. Of note in this series are images of the Paris Exposition, 1937; the San Francisco Fair, 1939; Frank Lloyd Wright's California houses, undated; colleges in China and Korea, 1922; and other scenes in China, Japan, and Honolulu, 1922.

Lastly, a small body of personal papers and student work, Series 6, completes the collection. It includes Hamlin's art and sketch books, private correspondence, fiction and poetry, personal and family photographs, student papers and drawings.
