Project files are most extensive for design of the Université Catholique de Louvain in Belgium and the city plan for Vienna, Austria. The firm's efforts to revitalize the central business districts of Fort Worth, Tex., Rochester, N.Y., Kalamazoo, Mich., Boston, Mass., Fresno, Calif., Urbana, Ill., and other American and European cities are also documented. Other topics include planning new towns, regional planning, general land development, public housing projects, and designs for college campuses. There is also material on the establishment of the Victor Gruen Foundation for Environmental Planning in Los Angeles and its sister organization, Zentrum für Umweltplanung in Vienna. Gruen's personal and family life are also well documented.
