Included among these were the drawings of the firms of McDonnell and Lenz, William Stewart and Son, Stewart and Witton [or W.P. Witton and Stewart], and Roy H. Bishop.
In addition to architectural drawings, the fonds also contains the drawings of various firms of engineers.
Types of buildings represented in the fonds include many commercial and industrial structures, such as office buildings, plants and factories, as well as hotels, banks and department stores. There are also private clubs, schools, orphanages, churches, residences, hospitals, band shells, arenas and YMCA facilities.
