The Robert Toombs house was the home of Robert Toombs, who served in the U.S. Congress and became Secretary of State of the Confederacy and a general in the Confederate Army.-- "Toombs, Robert, House." National Historic Landmarks Program. http://tps.cr.nps.gov/nhl/
Built in 1834 by noted Georgian James Camak in Athens, Ga., the Camak House has served as the office building for Winburn, Lewis & Barrow since 1993... The Camak House exhibits many of the traits common to Federal style homes, including a fanlit entrance, central hall plan and brick construction. However, one unique architectural feature of the structure is that, unlike so many homes built in its era, the Camak House was designed with a kitchen attached to it.--"Camak House Returns to Grandeur." Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. http://www.georgiatrust.org/whatwedo/Camak_House.html
The collection consists of photographs of the University of Georgia, the Robert Toombs House and the Camak House taken by or for Downing Bethune for various history projects, 1977-1979.
