Found in 7 Collections and/or Records:
Materials related to Armour Institute of Technology and Armour Mission, mostly published materials: programs, serials, reports, bulletins, and essays. Includes information on student life and events, commencements, courses, and academics. Lesser amounts of administrative materials on budgets, school planning, and board of trustees minutes.
Files created by Howard Dearstyne concerning his professional activities and fellow architects. The collection bulks with correspondence. Journal articles and tear sheets, particularly by or about Barry Byrne are also included, as is a photograph by John Gass of a house designed by Byrne. Of particular note is Dearstyne's correspondence with (Jace) Jacques Brownson, Barry Byrne (1937-1963) and others. Sally A. Chappell's name appears frequently in Byrne materials.

Video of Mies van der Rohe's 118th Birthday celebration held in S. R. Crown Hall on the campus of Illinois Institute of Technology on March 26, 2004. Present in order of appearance include Donna Robertson, Peter Beltemacchi, Jack Bowman, Louis Rocah, David Sharpe, Paul Shaver, Jack Hartray, and Peter Roesch. Speakers, most of whom were students or colleagues of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, talk about their recollections of him. Film produced by Dan Kuruna.
Annotated bibliography of articles and books containing references to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, perhaps created by David Spaeth as research for one of his books concerning Mies. The format is two decks of typed index cards, one deck arranged by date (1930-1979) and the other alphabetical by author, presumably covering the same dates. The bibliography includes references to foreign language publications, but annotations are in English.

Sharpe, includes numerous tributes to Goldsmith by friends and colleagues. The booklet also includes the text of obituaries published by various media sources.
