Series I.A. Ray Kappe -- Architect, 1954-1969
Projects created during Kappe's independent practice from 1954 to 1969 form the subseries. During this period, Kappe's work focused on residential structures, both single-family and multi-family, while also including a small amount of commercial and industrial building design. Occasionally, Kappe would collaborate with other architects, including Rex Lotery and Herbert Kahn, with whom he worked on the Urban Design Committee (See below Series III).

The projects are arranged in roughly chronological order, with undated material at the end of the subseries.
