Biographical/Historical Note

The Historic American Buildings Survey was organized in 1933 to create a permanent graphic record of the existing architectural remains of early dwellers in this country. The Survey was initially Federally funded under the Civil Works Administration, but later operated under the aegis of the National Parks Service, American Institute of Architects and the Library of Congress with WPA funding until 1941.
