Subseries 2. Frick Building Construction Reports, 1898-1912

Scope and Content Notes:

The construction reports pertain to both the Frick Building and Annex and include meeting minutes, contracts, surveys, ordinances, bills, estimates, schedules, photographs, drawings, bids, reports, index cards and specifications. Also included in this subseries are daily reports which provided progress on the work, number of workmen, finished work, and any special attention needed by the contractors. The photographs are three pictures of the safes being tested before, during, and after a fire. The drawings in this subseries consist of original draftsman’s sketches of Frick’s office furniture such as desks, chairs, book cases, and stools. The index cards document finished and unfinished contract matters. These cards could have possibly been used as an earlier filing system, noting various locations where files exist such as folders, safes, vouchers, and cupboards.
