Summary
  • This accession consists of some of the surviving drawings and plans from the landscape architecture firm of James T. Buck. The format of most of the drawings is pencil on tracing paper, however, some Diazoprint duplicates and single copies are included in the collection. No corresponding client files, financial, or other business records are extant
  • These drawings and a number of Buck's commissions were continuations of projects undertaken by his previous employer, Charles F. Gillette. Gillette died in 1967, and Buck completed or altered projects for Gillette's former clients. The style of the drawings are very similar to those produced in Gillette's office
