In 1927, the Montevideo Building Corporation built one of Champaign-Urbana's earliest cooperative apartment buildings at the northeast corner of Nevada Street and Coler Avenue in Urbana (now 706 S.

Van Dervoort, most of whom were on the University of Illinois faculty. The collection includes the architectural plans, 1926 and 1968, as well as the financial and legal papers of the Corporation.
