ACQUISITION INFORMATION:The collection was a gift from Rachel, John, and Ariel Brenner to the Ryerson and Burnham Archives in 1985.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH:
Daniel Brenner (1917-1977) was born in New York City, and received a B.Arch. degree from Columbia University in 1939. After graduation, Brenner began his architectural career in the New York City office of Alfred Easton Poor. Some years later, during the early to mid 1940s, Brenner embarked on a nearly year-long journey through Central and South America that eventually took him to the Instituto Allende in San Miguel Allende, Mexico. While at the Instituto, Brenner met Charles Worley and Charles 'Skip' Genther, who had studied under Ludwig Mies van der Rohe at Chicago's Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). Intrigued by the problems and concepts that Mies van der Rohe used in his teaching, Brenner moved to Chicago and received his M.S. in Architecture from IIT under Mies van der Rohe's tutelage in 1949. By the early 1950s, Brenner joined Jacques Brownson, William Dunlap, and Reginald Malcolmson as junior faculty at IIT. From 1958 to 1961, Brenner practiced with Dorothy Turck, whose office was at 646 Michigan Avenue in Chicago. Subsequently, Brenner joined George Danforth and H.P. Davis 'Deever' Rockwell in founding the architectural firm of Brenner, Danforth and Rockwell in 1961. Brenner's best-known projects include the National Design Center at Bertrand Goldberg's Marina City, the Great Ape House and Education Administration Building at the Lincoln Park Zoo, and the renovation of the Madlener House for the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts--all in Chicago--as well an addition to the J.B. Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky. Brenner was elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects in 1968. He died in Chicago in 1977.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE:
This collection includes architectural project and exhibition files, award submissions, financial and biographical data, photographs, and slides. The materials in this collection relate almost exclusively to Brenner's career as an architect and exhibitor, therefore most aspects of Brenner's personal life fall outside of the scope of these papers. Series I, II, and III contain paper documentation which represents a selection of Brenner's architectural projects, exhibition designs, award submissions, and other professional functions. Also included in Series III are resumes and other related biographical information. Series IV, Photographs and Slides, includes black and white prints, color slides, photomechanical prints, and transparencies of many of Brenner's architectural projects--through drawings and built structures--and exhibition designs. Series IV also contains several natural groups of photographs and related correspondence, designated as Award Submission Binders, which document the honors awarded to several Brenner architectural projects. Though not wholly inclusive of every Brenner project, these materials are nonetheless a fair representation of his most notable work while with his firm, Brenner, Danforth, Rockwell, such as 30 North LaSalle (aka the Stock Exchange Building), the restoration of Henry Hobson Richardson's John J. Glessner House restoration, Richard E. Schmidt's Graham Foundation (aka the Madlener House) renovation, and the National Design Center at Marina City, all in Chicago, Illinois, as well as the J.B. Speed Art Museum, in Louisville, Kentucky. Noteworthy correspondents include Philip Johnson, Edgar Kauffman, Jr., Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, James Speyer, and sculptor Henry Moore. Noteworthy photographers include Richard Nickel and John Vinci.

ORGANIZATION AND ARRANGEMENT:
SERIES I: ARCHITECTURAL PROJECTS. Correspondence, published and unpublished material about Brenner's architectural projects, arranged alphabetically by project name, then by document type, and finally chronologically.

SERIES II: EXHIBITION DESIGNS. Correspondence, published and unpublished materials documenting Brenner's installations for The Art Institute of Chicago and other institutions, arranged alphabetically by exhibition title, then by document type, and finally chronologically.

SERIES III: PROFESSIONAL PAPERS. Financial papers, correspondence, manuscripts, and printed matter arranged by document type, then chronologically within each group.

SERIES IV: PHOTOGRAPHS AND SLIDES. Photographs, slides, photomechanical prints, and transparencies of Brenner's projects, are arranged alphabetically by project name. Within each project, photographs have been further separated into two categories, General Views and Award Submission Binders, and then sorted by view type. Following Brenner's architectural projects, the remaining photographs are arranged into Exhibit Views, Brenner Miscellaneous, and Projects By Other Architects, and then by view type within each group.
