Series I. Project files, 1940-1996

Physical Description: 5.5 linear feet 11 boxes

Scope and Content Note

This series is comprised of photographs, slides, negatives, correspondence, and other documents pertaining to approximately 160 projects. There are no drawings in the collection, only a few minor sketches. Arranged alphabetically by project name, Series I covers the majority of Johnson's work - from student projects undertaken in 1940s to projects still being negotiated and/or constructed as of 1996. See Series II for the structures Johnson designed for his New Canaan, CT estate. The materials included in these files range in size and format from 2" x 2" slides to 14" x 11" photographs of presentation renderings, but the bulk of the material consists of 8" x 10" photographs. Although a large percentage of the photographs are of architectural drawings, many are of buildings. The photographs of architectural drawings are listed according to type: plan, elevation, section, detail, or rendering. Furthermore, the sums listed for the photographs reflect the number of items in total and not necessarily the number of originals, as there are many duplicates throughout the files.

Physical Description: 3.5 linear feet 7 boxes

Scope and Content Note

This series, like Series I, is comprised of photographs, slides, negatives, correspondence, and other documents - all of which vary in size and format.

The files are organized into three sections: Photographs of drawings of the Glass House (boxes 12-13), Photographs of the Glass House (boxes 14-15), and Other structures (boxes 16-18). The first section is arranged chronologically, the second is arranged alphabetically by photographer (at least for exterior shots), and the third is arranged alphabetically by structure.

Series III. Professional documents, 1948-2000

Scope and Content Note

This series is comprised of work-related documents that do not pertain to a specific project. Series III is arranged chronologically except for the first two boxes, both of which contain dateless items (lists and reference materials).

A large portion of this series is devoted to Johnson's "chrono" (a chronological file of one-page letters or faxes), the contents of which are listed alphabetically by last name in the Container List.

Series V. Personal photographs, 1908-1998

Physical Description: 3.5 linear feet 5 boxes

Scope and Content Note

This series is comprised of photographs of Johnson, both alone and with others. Ranging in size from 3.5" x 5" to 11" x 14", the photographs are arranged chronologically, except for two boxes at the end of the series containing photo albums and oversize prints (larger than 11" x 11"). Dates followed by a question mark in the Container List are approximations, as many of the photographs are unlabeled. Though Johnson filed the majority of his photographs by decade (e.g., 1950s, 1960s, 1970s), he did file some by content and others by photographer; thus, there are a number of folders that span more than one decade. The sums listed for the photographs reflect the number of items in total and not necessarily the number of originals, as there are many duplicates throughout the files.
