Texas Architecture Survey Records:

An Inventory of its Photographs and Papers, 1963-1966, 2002



Collection Summary

Creator: Texas Architecture Survey
Title: Texas Architecture Survey records
Dates: 1963-1966, 2002
Abstract: The records consist of photographs, slides, negatives, photographic shot logs, administrative records, field reports, correspondence, summary reports, building descriptions and indices related to the Texas Architecture Survey. The Texas Architecture Survey (TAS) was commissioned by the Amon Carter Museum of Western Art (Fort Worth, Texas) and the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture. Conducted from 1963-1966, the survey produced a partial visual inventory of Texas homes and public buildings built in the nineteenth century. The survey resulted in two books published by the Amon Carter Museum and University of Texas Press: Texas Homes of the Nineteenth Century (1966) by Blake Alexander and Texas Public Buildings of the Nineteenth Century (1974) by Willard Robinson. Photographer Todd Webb was commissioned by the Texas Architecture Survey to document the survey. Webb's work was reproduced in the two publications and was also exhibited at the Amon Carter Museum in 1966 and 1975.

History of the Texas Architecture Survey

In 1963, the Board of Trustees of the Amon Carter Museum of Western Art in Fort Worth, Texas invited the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture to participate in a survey of nineteenth century historic buildings in Texas. The Amon Carter Museum (ACM) had recently opened in 1961 and planned to use the photographic documentation from the survey as part of its exhibition development program. The survey would be uniquely focused on Texas, modeled on previous national efforts such as the Historic American Building Survey (HABS) operated by the National Park Service. The Texas Architecture Survey (TAS) would document nineteenth-century buildings, including those at risk of demolition or being condemned.

John Garner began work as Field Director of operations on January 27, 1964. Garner was a Master's student in the University of Texas School of Architecture, working with Professors Martin Kermacy and Blake Alexander. Garner drove throughout Texas, establishing local contacts and documenting buildings with 35 mm slide transparency film. These slides, and his field notes (called “Building Description Lists”) [both found in Series B], were reviewed by the university steering committee. The committee and ACM then created building lists for professional photographer Todd Webb to shoot in large format film.

The TAS designated eight geographical districts within the state of Texas. Field Director Garner worked by district, recording notes about visited counties, cities, communities, and buildings. Garner (and collaborators) used a classification system based on abbreviations for these districts, counties, and cities to identify and organize the slides. Each building within a city was given a sequential number. Garner worked in District One first, mostly in Spring 1964.

Although it appears that the TAS planned to visit all 254 counties and eight districts in Texas, their efforts actually focused on central and eastern Texas. Garner completed his fieldwork and resigned as Field Director on June 1, 1965, thus concluding all primary data acquisition for the TAS. In his final report, dated June 24, 1965, Garner noted that "the physical area surveyed at the close of the project was comprised of all counties east of a line drawn from Del Rio on the Rio Grande River to Denison on the Red River with the exception of certain counties proximate to the east side of the described line -- Edwards, Real, Kimble, Mason, McCullough, Comanche, Erath, and Denton. In all, there were 138 counties of the State surveyed. Those 116 counties not investigated comprise the geographical region known as West Texas."

Todd Webb, commissioned by the Amon Carter Museum as a professional photographer, worked from a prescribed building list developed by the Texas Architecture Survey. Although Field Director Garner did not work in West Texas, Todd Webb was able to photograph several buildings in the region. His photographic coverage often followed Garner's preliminary work but does not mirror it. No documentation exists to establish the terms or period of employment for Todd Webb, but his shot logs date from March 1964 to October 1966.

All materials accrued by the field investigation were deposited [as of 1965] either in Fort Worth or Austin by Field Director Garner upon termination of his duties. Principally, all record photographs were left in the security of Professor Alexander at the University of Texas, while all equipment and supplies were returned to the Carter Museum. Todd Webb continued working throughout 1966.

The TAS also relied on external collections of historical photographs to aid the selection of outstanding buildings for the survey and publications. The Amon Carter printed negatives produced by architect and historian David Williams. The TAS also acquired the Gus Cranz collection of historic Texas architecture from his widow and son. Records also include what was internally termed by the TAS as the "Texas Frontier Architecture File."

Todd Webb’s work was intended for gallery exhibition at the ACM and publication in two architectural history books. The TAS collection contains all of his shot logs, contact sheets, contact and study prints, negatives, and a selection of large prints. The descriptive information is not standardized, although many photographs are identified by building name, street address, general location, city, county, previous resident, or other data.

Todd Webb did not use the same classification filing system for his photographs as Garner. The Webb photographic negatives are arranged by Amon Carter Museum (ACM) accession numbers.

Two books resulted from the TAS project, which are illustrated exclusively with Todd Webb photographs: Texas Homes of the Nineteenth Century written by Professor Drury Blakeley Alexander of UT-Austin (published by The University of Texas Press for the Amon Carter Museum in 1966) and Texas Public Buildings of the Nineteenth Century by Professor Willard B. Robinson of Texas Tech University (published by The University of Texas Press for the Amon Carter Museum in 1974). The records in the TAS collection include a reference document for matching Todd Webb negatives with pages and plates in the two publications.

In 1969, the Amon Carter transferred the bulk of the TAS collection to the University of Texas. Professor Blake Alexander may have retained some items as well. The "Texas Frontier Architecture File" records were donated by Garner in 1986, followed by another gift of large exhibit panels from the Amon Carter in 1987. The large exhibition panels are not considered part of the collection. In 2002, the Amon Carter transferred several boxes of material including the Gus Cranz and David Williams reference collections, and Todd Webb photographic material. In 2004, the Visual Resources Collection donated the field slides (35 mm) taken by Garner.


Biography of Todd Webb

Todd Webb (1905-2000) was an American photographer who befriended Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O'Keeffe, with works held by over 15 museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, NY; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; the Chicago Art Institute, IL; and the George Eastman House, Rochester, NY. Referred to as “an historian with a camera,” Webb was an established photographer when commissioned by the Amon Carter Museum to produce photographic works for the Texas Architecture Survey. Webb was already working with the Carter to exhibit a solo show, Early Western Trails and Some Ghost Towns [Photographs by Todd Webb] that ran from November 25, 1965–January 16, 1966. During this era, Webb and his wife Lucille spent 10 years living in New Mexico, near Georgia O'Keeffe. Information from http://www.toddwebbphotographs.com/about_todd.html

Todd Webb had two successful exhibitions at the Amon Carter featuring his work with the TAS: Texas Homes of the Nineteenth Century [Photographs by Todd Webb], October 27, 1966–January 1967; and Texas Public Buildings of the Nineteenth Century [Photographs by Todd Webb], November 14, 1974–January 5, 1975.


Scope and Content of the collection

The collection includes the administrative records of the Texas Architecture Survey (1963-1966). The strengths of this collection are (1) the documentary "building description lists" containing information on individual buildings and (2) photographic documentation of nineteenth century buildings in Texas as they appeared circa 1964 and 1965. Building description lists may include field notes about building dates of construction, names of former owners, and notes on architectural details of public buildings, private homes, and other structures. The Texas Architecture Survey (TAS) created two sets of images for its own mission. Field Director John Garner took 35 mm slide transparencies for reference and review, while Todd Webb produced professional, documentary photographs using 120 mm or larger film negatives. The UT School of Architecture purchased Garner's original set of slides, which are now part of the Texas Architecture Survey records. Todd Webb’s photographic documentation includes negatives, contact sheets, contact prints and large prints, indexes to buildings photographed, and shot logs. The TAS relied on reference collections of prints and negatives acquired by Professor Alexander, Gus Cranz, David Williams and other photographers. These reference materials guided location scouting and survey selection.

Detailed Description of the Collection

 

Series A: Administrative Documents, 1963-1966, 2002
1.37 linear feet of textual materials

Series Abstract
The Texas Architecture Survey (TAS) was active from 1963-1966, followed by a period of record management of Todd Webb prints (and negatives) by the Amon Carter Museum until 2002. John Garner served as Field Director of the Survey from January 1964 until June 1965, working across Texas to document historical building facts and acquire preliminary reference imagery. TAS administrative documents include field reports, correspondence, academic reports, and a card index of regional personal contacts. Administrative documents from the Amon Carter Museum detail operating budgets and indices of Todd Webb photographic negatives, prints, and images as published in the two resulting architecture books. These indices are excellent resources for locating photographs within a Texas city.
Subseries A1: Administrative Records of the TAS, 1964-1966
1.2 linear feet
Series A is arranged without original order, and priority has been given to comprehensive or informative summary reports.
The following documents were produced during the administration and management of the Texas Architecture Survey from 1964-1966. John Garner worked simultaneously as a graduate student in the School of Architecture of the University of Texas and on commission as the Survey Field Director for the Amon Carter Museum. Garner filed several types of field reports: operations logs, operations projections, and field reports submitted to both the Museum and to the University. These brief dated reports include weather conditions, miles driven, number of rolls of film exposed, descriptions of personal contacts and their recommendations, and a few lines of text about buildings surveyed. Series A also includes correspondence to coordinate schedules and operations among Garner, Professor Blake Alexander of the University of Texas, Eugene George, AIA (teaching in Kansas in 1964) and Mitchell A. Wilder, the Director of the Amon Carter Museum.

In 2002, the Amon Carter Museum of Fort Worth, Texas de-accessioned all remaining items from the Texas Architecture Survey, including their own administrative records detailing catalog indices and accession records for Todd Webb photographic images and negatives. The accession record numbers assigned by the Amon Carter Museum cover all Todd Webb negatives, and begin with P1977.12.1 for his first frame. An administrative binder maintained by the Museum was disassembled and items were sequentially rehoused into archival folders 2-12 through 2-18. The binder was entitled “Index to the Texas Architecture Survey Negatives by Todd Webb 1966.” The indices to Todd Webb photographs are a useful resource for locating information about buildings in a specific town. It is also advised to use the indices in conjunction with the two published books, as the indices include detailed references to page numbers and image plate numbers.

Series B: John Garner and Texas Architecture Survey Field Documentation and Photographic Material, circa 1964-1965 and undated
13,233 color slides (35 mm), and 0.3 linear feet of textual materials

Series Abstract
As Field Director, Garner created 35 mm slides and paper documentation of historical buildings to supplement additional slides created by Professor Alexander and others. All slides were reviewed by the Texas Architecture Survey and were later re-used in architecture lectures. Slides are hand-labeled with the county-city-building number abbreviation system used by Garner and the TAS. Descriptive labels were added later by Visual Resource Collection staff in the School of Architecture, following the bulk purchase of the original slide collection. Slides are stored in metal cabinets and are arranged alphabetically by Texas county. Within each county, slides are grouped by city. There are also a few slides from Mexico. Slides can be examined against information in the building description lists, although there is not perfect accordance between the two.
In his "student research report to Professor Kermacy" (1964) Garner states, "Each structure surveyed is field photographed by the Field Director [Garner] as a recording measure ... An index-identification system for the slides was not developed until toward the close of field activities for District 1, when a conclusive system was adopted. The individual code as developed is made up of a series of letters and numbers that indicates the county, town or vicinity, and chronological order of a particular structure. Each county within a given district is accorded a code made up of the initial letter of the county name, written in upper case. Where several counties exhibit identical initial letters, then a second letter, written in lower case, is taken from the county name and added following the initial letter. Each town or vicinity within the county where photographs were made is also coded, again by a combination of initial and second letters, upper and lower case. ... Following the two combined alphabetized codes and separated by a dash mark is an Arabic numeral designating the numerical order of the particular structure photographed. This order, although arbitrary, usually follows the sequence observed in the Field Report, which closely approximates the order in which the structures were viewed in the field and serves only as a numbering sequence. Each transparency is thus coded and so noted on the Building Description List."
After being transferred to the School of Architecture in the late 1970's, the slides were duplicated on request. Red marks indicate slides duplicated for Professor Blake Alexander, yellow marks indicate duplicates for lecture series, and dark blue represents special requests by faculty. There is also a separate set of slides, with 271 duplicates made for the Amon Carter Museum.
The electronic index to the TAS slides details known information for each slide, with descriptions indentifying the District, County, City, Building, Street Address, Date of Building, Item Count, View (Exterior, Interior), TAS Building Code, and Archivists' Notes.

Series C: Todd Webb - Photographic Material and Documentation, 1964-1966 and undated
1,669 black and white prints and 3,609 black and white negatives, paper documentation (8.57 linear feet)

Todd Webb was commissioned by the Amon Carter Museum (ACM) to professionally photograph selected sites and buildings, using information from Field Director Garner's initial survey work. Todd Webb (TW) recorded extensive shot logs, detailing trip sequences (labeled A-H) and roll numbers for his 120 mm film. Todd Webb also worked with 4x5 inch film, 5x7 inch and 8x10 inch film, recording detailed images of hundreds of Texas buildings. His entire body of work is in black and white, consisting of 3,609 frames. Frequent building types photographed include county courthouses, churches, and historical homes from nineteenth-century Texas.
Guide to Accessing Work by Todd Webb:
To locate buildings, cities, counties, or construction styles of interest:
  • Consult index cards, arranged alphabetically by city, listing every geographic location photographed with 120 mm film [Subseries C1]
  • Read the descriptive shot logs that accompany the contact sheet prints of 120 mm film [Subseries C2]
  • Consult contact sheets printed for all black and white 120 mm negatives [Subseries C2]
  • Review contact prints made from large format negatives (black and white) [Subseries C3]
  • Examine working prints (printed at several enlargement sizes, arranged by city) [Subseries C4]
  • Review 10x13 inch enlargement prints (289 prints, black and white) of select buildings [Subseries C6]
  • Consult the two books published with select Todd Webb images [black and white printing, available in Architecture and Planning Library, University of Texas]
  • Search either version of the spreadsheet included in this finding aid (.xls, .pdf)
The ACM initially cataloged all Todd Webb negatives, assigning sequential accession numbers to 819 photographic shot locations (P1977.12.1-819), encompassing a total of 3,609 frames. The key to the ACM numbers is:
  • the collection number is P1977.12 – this prefix is universal across all items
  • the numbers 1 through 819 refer to shot location, or to the unique roll number
  • the roll number designation applies to items 1 through 302, which are rolls of 120 mm film
  • the frame number from a roll of 120 mm film is designated as a suffix to the accession number. For example, the accession number P1977.12.180.4 refers to Roll #180, Frame 4
  • The ACM number is also a key to identifying the size of the film negative used by Todd Webb, where: P1977.12.1-302 (120mm film), P1977.12.303-326 (8 × 10 inch), P1977.12.327-681 (5 × 7 inch), and P1977.12.682-819 (4 × 5 inch).
The following crosswalk converts Amon Carter Museum accession numbers to Todd Webb 120 mm roll numbers :
  • P1977.12.1-34 (rolls 1-35, no letters)
  • P1977.12.35-64 (rolls 1A - 31A)
  • P1977.12.65-95 (rolls 32A - 62A)
  • P1977.12.96-139 (rolls 1B - 44B)
  • P1977.12.140-160 (rolls 1C - 21C)
  • P1977.12.161-189 (rolls 1D - 29D)
  • P1977.12.190-218 (rolls 30D - 58D)
  • P1977.12.219 - 248 (rolls 1F - 32F)
  • P1977.12.249-282 (rolls 33F - 66F)
  • P1977.12.283-286 (rolls 1H - 4H)
  • P1977.12.287-301 (rolls 1J - 15J)
  • P1977.12.302 contains portraits of Mitchell (Mitch) A. Wilder of the ACM
  • P1977.12.303-819 (large format negatives): Todd Webb did not assign unique roll numbers to his large format negatives. Items printed from large format negatives are indexed only by ACM accession number
Provenance is unknown for the Todd Webb print numbers that appear on the reverse of select enlargements in Subseries C6.
Researchers interested in the exhibition history of Todd Webb's work should contact the Archives of the Amon Carter Museum of Fort Worth, Texas.
Subseries C1: Documentation supporting photographic work
0.5 linear feet
The paper card index, arranged alphabetically by town or city, lists every building and location photographed by Todd Webb using 120 mm film. The creator of the index is unknown. The index cards provide the city, subject matter, Todd Webb film roll number, and frame number (for example: GALVESTON, Interior Stairway of old Federal Courthouse, Roll 7C, frames 1-5). This information can be used to locate the image on the Todd Webb contact sheets, which are arranged by Rolls 1-35, then Rolls A-H, with every roll given a number (for example: Roll A2, A3).

Subseries C5: Todd Webb Photographic Negatives, 1964-1966
3,609 frames of black and white film (2.17 linear feet)
Several indices are available to all Todd Webb negatives, including searchable electronic resources (see below). Photographic negative size formats consist of 120 mm, 4x5 inch, 5x7 inch, and 8x10 inch black and white negatives shot by Todd Webb in 1966. He recorded 3,609 frames. When working with 120 mm film rolls, Webb often captured 9 or 12 image frames per roll.
Negatives are arranged sequentially by Amon Carter Museum accession number. The ACM number incorporates the roll and frame number of every image. The 120 mm roll film negatives were given accession numbers in the range (P1977.12.1-302), but individual negatives are identified by the additional suffix number 1 through 9, which corresponds to the handwritten number present on the contact sheets (for example P1977.12.136.8 refers to Roll #136, Frame 8). Larger format negatives have been assigned these accession numbers: P1977.12.303-326 (8x10 inch), P1977.12.327-681 (5x7 inch), and P1977.12.682-819 (4x5 inch). The photographic negatives are not stored in alphabetical order by city, but in sequence by Amon Carter accession number.

Subseries C6: Todd Webb Enlargements, 1964-1966, undated
289 photographs (3.0 linear feet)
Arrangement: alphabetical by Texas county, then by city
Twelve oversize boxes house 10x13 inch enlargements (289 prints) of select Todd Webb prints. The selection decision for printing these images is not clearly documented in the collection, but these are a representative sampling of the Webb's work done for the two books and two exhibitions. Additional information can often be found on the reverse of prints (such as a numbering system with examples like "TW-217") and has not been included in this finding aid. Some prints are mounted on boards while other prints are unmounted. There are duplicates among the prints and across multiple boxes. The prints have been re-arranged since original receipt and are now stored alphabetically by Texas county. Documentation listing original receipt order has been saved and is included in the records.

Series E: Reference Collection: David (Dave) Williams Photographic Material undated
1,668 black and white photographic prints, 30 contact sheets, 35 mm copy negatives, and paper documentation (3.75 linear feet)

In his "student research report to Professor Kermacy" (1964), Field Director Garner notes that: "Two additional private photographic collections of significance are also known to the Survey, and have provided valuable assistance. The Dave Williams Collection is a series of photographs of some well known and many vernacular structures recorded just after the turn of the century. This collection forms a valuable research tool, with its emphasis on native building methods and materials, as evidenced by the subject matter of the photographs."
"The Williams Collection provides an example subject for discussion of the handling of such private collections when they come into the hands of the Survey. In this instance, the collection had never been printed as a whole body and consisted principally of processed negatives. There was no order to the collection, and these negatives were uncatalogued and unidentified. Some had been printed in the positive format, and Williams' original identification was found on these. Several knowledgeable individuals [Professors Blake Alexander and Eugene George] had examined the collection subsequent to that time and had grouped the negatives by geographical areas. Access to this collection was secured by the Survey, [via Eugene George,] and it was decided to accept the responsibility of printing the collection and of identifying the structures."
Garner continues writing, saying that, "three sets [of Williams prints] were indicated; one for the Museum, one for The University, and one set for the Field Director. This last set was to be carried in the field and an attempt made to identify the photographs. All photographs were printed to the same size, and binders with clear plastic sleeves were secured to hold them."
Records do not clearly indicate if this plan was successfully completed, as there is no clear original order or detailed identification for the prints.
