Summary
  • This accession consists four sheets from the landscape architecture firm of James T. Buck; three drawings for Newington Baptist Church, Gloucester County, Virginia, and one general detail drawing of a brick balustrade with no client attribution. The former set has one drawing by C. W. Huff, Jr., and J. Carl Morris and Associates of Richmond, Virginia. The drawings are Diazo print and pencil on tracing paper. 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
