Kappe (Ray) Papers
Series III. Other professional papers, 1959-2007, undated 11.7 Linear Feet (16 boxes, 1 flatfile)
The series is comprised of materials relating to a broad range of Kappe's professional activities and affiliations. It includes awards and honors received, professional service and memberships, office records, Kappe's writings and lectures and reference materials. Of particular interest are the materials relating to Kappe's work with the Urban Design Committee of the Southern California Chapter of the AIA. It was within the context of this committee from circa 1963 to 1969 that Kappe developed relationships with Herbert Kahn and Rex Lotery and found that they shared similar approaches to urban design and planning, especially as regards social and housing issues. Collaboration on committee studies, including the Gray Area Study and the Circulation Distribution Study for the Community Redevelopment Agency, led to the formation of their partnership in 1970. The series also contains newspaper and magazine articles that Kappe assembled over the course of his career that chronicle both his work as well as his professional interests. Due to water damage, access to some items in this series may be limited.
