Summary
  • This accession consists three drawings and plans for Mr. Quincy Cole, Richmond, Virginia, from the landscape architecture firm of James T. Buck. The drawings are pencil on tracing paper and Diazo print. 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
