The initial structures that were included in the first Long Range Development Plan included Library-Administration, Commons, Humanities-Social Science, Fine Arts, Natural Sciences and Science Lecture Hall, Central Plant, Campus Hall (later Crawford Hall), and Mesa Court. Architectural plans for most of these structures are included in this collection.
