Overview

The records consist of correspondence, blueprints and tables, clippings, and publications maintained by John V. Farwell as chairman of the Committee on the Architectural Plan.

Biographical / Historical

In the early 1900s, Anson Phelps Stokes, secretary, and George Parmly Day, treasurer, won Corporation approval for the preparation of a general architectural plan for Yale University. Mrs. Frances P. Garvan, a benefactor of Yale, secured and offered the services of architect John Russell Pope. Pope's plan served as the stimulus for the general plan of the University which was adopted in 1924, after study and revision by the Corporation's Committee on the Architectural Plan and James Gamble Rogers, consulting architect to Yale.
