Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Central Illinois Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (A.I.A.) was originally organized in 1917 as the Peoria Society of Architects with the purpose of promoting the objectives and ideals of the A.I.A. in the region. According to its constitution, the members endeavored to promote "the aesthetic, scientific and practical efficiency of the profession, and to make the profession of ever-increasing service to society."

The records include correspondence between the chapter and the national organization, the organization's constitution and by-laws, minutes of chapter meetings, committee papers, financial and membership records, and publications. Of particular interest are the papers relating to New Deal programs of the 1930s and the domestic building cutbacks of World War II. Committee papers and publications include information on legislation, historic preservation, professional ethics and responsibilities, relations with the construction industry, and environmental problems.

Professor Alan K. Laing, Department of Architecture, University of Illinois, arranged for the formation of the collection, which came to the Library in 1970.
