Description

Series XXXIX, Professional papers of Thomas Lincoln Casey (1831-1896): State, War and Navy Building, Washington, D.C., 1871-1889, undated (#43.1-46.42), contains professional correspondence; official reports; memoranda; drawings; notes; contracts; estimate and expenditure records; engineering calculations; financial accounts; printed material; etc.; relating to Casey's work on the State, War and Navy Building in Washington, D.C. A sizable portion of the series is comprised of Bernard R. Green's (assistant to Casey) correspondence and reports to Casey, which also contain commentary on other projects under Casey's direction. Green's documents are noted as being detailed, lively, and discursive, in contrast to the documents submitted by Green's deputy, E. Sutherland. The papers comprising this series were previously separated out from the larger collection of the Thomas Lincoln Casey's papers (now Series XXII), prior to the 2013-2014 grant project. The creation of an "artificial" project series was intended to better facilitate the needs of researchers. (Please note that not all papers relating to the State, War and Navy Building project may have been incorporated into Series XXXIX.) See Series XXXII, Series XXXVIII, and Series XL for related material. The series is arranged alphabetically by record type, and thereunder chronologically.
