Marion Manley architectural collection - 1925-1977
The collection comprises architectural drawings, photographs and papers pertaining to Manley’s career. The drawings are working plans for her later designs; earlier drawings were destroyed by the architect when she moved from her Coconut Grove office. Clients for whom buildings were designed include Betsy and Denman Fink, Melville Bell Grosvenor, Sengra (developer of Miami Lakes), University of Miami, Philip Wylie, and Herbert S. Zim.
The papers include some correspondence, photographs, and newspaper clippings. The photographs are primarily of the houses she designed or refurbished. Two albums contain photographs of renderings of proposed buildings and aerial images of the University of Miami.
