Physical Description: Includes correspondence, slides, photographs, architectural plans, possibly a few audio diskettes, publications.
Scope and Contents: Includes correspondence, biographical materials, subject files, a selection of his teaching materials, 6 rolls of architectural plans (apparently related to Lewis' own designs), a selection of his slides (labeled and/or related to his projects) used for teaching purposes, lectures and presentations, photographs, publications, correspondence related to his service on boards and his work for Architectural Spectrum.

Except for subject files, most material was piled up or strewn across the various rooms, also pulled apart by family members who had already weeded and culled material before we arrived: no original order discernible. Therefore, most of the material transferred to UA is currently without order.

Among the tens of thousands of slides, we only selected those slide boxes/slides for transfer to UA that were labeled and might be indentified on the slide indici and scripts, and those slides that might be related to his architectural projects. Working with the indici and scripts might lead to further culling.

We neither transferred film reels (secondary commercial films) nor secondary literature, duplicates of architectural plans and other materials, and we only selected some class material for transfer.

Architectural plans for the Wesley Foundation were found in the collection and were offered to both Facilities and the Wesley Foundation. As Facilities did not want them, and the Wesley Foundation did not respond before the deadline of October 25, 2022, the plans were deaccessioned.
