Becket (Welton) Architectural Drawings and Photographs
Series VII. Charles F. Plummer, Architect records, 1919-1932, 1938-1939, 1995-1998 86.4 Linear Feet (1 box, 95 flatfile folders, 12 boxed rolls)
Series VII is comprised of the drawings for about 90 projects created by Charles F. Plummer during two periods of independent practice, from about 1919 to 1932 and then from 1938 until his death early in 1939. Presumably Welton Becket retained these drawings after the 1939 death of Charles Plummer, his partner in the firm of Plummer, Wurdeman and Becket.
