Series VIII - Real Estate Records, circa 1869-1964

Scope and Contents

Series VIII consists of 1 box and 1 oversize box of documents relating to CAS real estate, arranged chronologically 1873-1964, and 3 volumes [circa 1869]-1961. The documents in the boxes include deeds, leases, contracts, a small amount of correspondence, and architectural drawings.

The first box (box 38) consists of folders arranged chronologically 1873-1964, including 3 folders related to work for the CAS by the architectural firm of Calvert Vaux & George Radford interfiled with the other real estate material. Some of the folders in this box include groups of leases, contracts or other documents related to a single property over a span of years, and these are arranged chronologically according to the first document in the folder.

The second box (OS1) is an oversize box of 4 architectural drawings on drafting linen (3 exteriors, 1 cutaway) of the Rhinelander School by the firm of Vaux & Radford circa 1890. The drawings, numbered 7, 8, 9 and 12, appear to be part of a series of drawings, but the location of the remaining drawings is unknown.

Series VIII also includes three volumes regarding real estate owned by the CAS. The volumes appear in the container list at the end of the series, after the boxes.

See also Edwin Merrill Correspondence, Series IV.3.D, for more material relating to real estate. See also Series IX - Facilities - for material about specific properties, including oversize property surveys, arranged according to facility.
