  • Fonds
  • [194-?] - 2019

Fonds consists of moving images, sound recordings, and textual records relating to Arthur Erickson, his achievements, his travels, and his friends and family. Moving images include documentaries; exhibitions; TV programs; Architectural Institute of America meetings; artistic films; and home movies documenting Erickson's travels and family life. Note that a number of the films are duplicates stored on different mediums (e.g. Betacam, U-matic, and VHS). Sound recordings include radio interviews, lecture series, news documentaries, movie soundtracks, and a soundtrack for the Architectural Institute of America awards ceremony. Textual records include two books and two pamphlets.

The fonds has been arranged by the archivist into seven series:

Travel films (series 1)
Audiovisual materials related to Arthur Erickson (series 2)
Published materials related to Arthur Erickson (series 3)
Memorial pamphlets (series 4)
Erickson family films (series 5)
Artistic films (series 6)
Sound recordings related to Arthur Erickson (series 7)

Audiovisual materials related to Arthur Erickson

Series consists of analogue and digitized motion picture documentaries, exhibitions, TV programs, news reels, interviews, Architectural Institute of America meetings, and aerial footage. The subject of these motion pictures includes Erickson, the Erickson/Massey Architects firm, and specific buildings and designs by Erickson.

Note that a number of the motion pictures include duplicates stored on different mediums (e.g. Betacam, U-matic, and VHS), so total item numbers do not correspond with total objects.
