The Marcel Breuer Papers were generously donated to the Archives of American Art between 1985 and 1999 by his widow, Constance Breuer. Spanning the years 1920 to 1986, the papers include correspondence, interviews, writings, project files, photographs, financial records, and printed material documenting Breuer's career as an architect and designer.
These papers-a small portion of which are exhibited here-reflect the vast range of his creations, from tubular steel chairs to private residences, college campuses, factories, department stores, government buildings, and industrial housing complexes.
In 2005, the Archives made these materials fully accessible on the Web as the Marcel Breuer papers online.
