9.3: Case Study Houses, circa 1945-1962

Found here are photographs of architecture designed for the Case Study House program. McCoy researched and wrote about this program extensively, and researchers should note that additional photographs of these houses can be found within her writing files in Series 4 for both her book,
Modern California Houses: Case Study Houses 1946-1962
, and the exhibition catalog,
Blueprints for Modern Living: History and Legacy of the Case Study House
. Some of these files also include a photograph of the architect(s). Most of the photographs were taken by Esther McCoy, Julius Shulman, Marvin Rand, or the architect.
Photographs are arranged alphabetically by architect and then by project number.
Portions of this subseries have been scanned. Photographs taken by Julius Shulman and Marvin Rand have not been scanned and are noted in the folder heading.
