Fonds consists of records created and accumulated by Morton Katz during his career as an architect, sculptor and teacher. It includes architectural and technical drawings, photographs and a variety of textual materials. The records mainly document the projects Katz proposed or completed in his private practice, however a few of the files derive from his earlier work with other architectural firms.
The fonds also includes drawings and other work completed by Katz as a student at the University of Toronto and reference files kept by Katz throughout his career. It also includes a series of teaching and research records created and accumulated by Katz in his role as a professor at the University of Toronto. The research files document Katz's interest in, and experimentation with, innovative building designs for use in northern and arctic climates.
Morton Katz is an architect and sculptor based in Toronto.
