The major architectural collections held by Western Archives are the Murphy-Moore Collection of Architectural Records and the Museum London Collection of Architectural Records. The architectural drawings in the collections date from c1850 to 2010 and are from several prominent firms in London. These collection contains thousands of plans and drawings of London and Southwestern Ontario area houses, factories, churches, businesses, Western University buildings and well known London architectural landmarks. Be sure to ask the Archives Staff to search the database to see if one of the firm’s architects designed the building you are researching.
A few other architectural sources are available such as the Arthur Nutter fonds and the Frank White fonds.
