Alan Colquhoun papers, 1942-2010

Series III: Visual Material

Comprised of three subseries: Photographs, Slides, Drawings, and DVDs. The majority of the photographs are personal documentation of Colquhoun's travels in India, while others include miscellaneous personal prints of friends and family. The slides depict architecture exclusively, and were presumably used both for publication and teaching purposes. They were arranged by Colquhoun himself, for most often by architect, location or movement, and his arrangement has been kept wherever discernable. The DVD's contain photographs and video, while the drawing series includes, on the one hand, Colquhoun's school work and on the other, reproductions of drawings by Colquhoun + Miller.
