James Rossant papers, 1950s-1990s

Series I: Project Records

Series I is organized alphabetically by project name. Project records typically include one or more summary sheets and some form of photographic representation (primarily photographic prints and/or 35mm slides of drawings, model photography and views of completed structures). A small number of projects lack summary documentation, and appear only as slides or printed drawings; many have more extensive files including various correspondence, publication clippings, printed drawings, promotional materials, etc. With the partial exception of the National Capital Center in Dodoma, projects are not documented with extensive incremental notes, sketches, client correspondence, etc.
