Exhibition Here
Reveals Worth
Of Old Houses
Photographs And Sketches
Of Historic Michigan
BuildingsOn Display
Old Michigan houses of historical
and architectural importance are pre-
served in the drawings and photo-
graphs now on display on the third
floor of the Architecture Building.
Prof. Emii Lorch, of the architectur-
al college and chairman of the Com-
mittee on Michigan Architecture of
the Michigan Society of Architects,
is in charge of the display.
The pictures on exhibition include
enlargements of the Micligan group
compiled for the Historical American
Buildings Survey undertaken by the
National Park Service. The purpose
of this survey, an unemployment
project, was to collect historical data,
secure measured drawings and take
photograph% of representative types
of architecture before 1860. All this
source material has been deposited
in the Library of Congress, through
which copies of the drawings and
photographs can be secured.
The exhibit shows the extent to
which the classical tradition of archi-
tecture penetrated into the Mid-West
100 years ago, stimulating the erec-
tion of buildings, some of which are
models of their kind. The aim of the
display, according to Professor Lorch,
is to help arouse interest in pre-
serving worthy architecture and to
demonstrate its continuing value.
Joint sponsors of the exhibit are
the MichigansSociety of Architects
and the J. L. Hudson Co. of Detroit.
