BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH:
George Edson Danforth (1916-2007), left his hometown of LaHarpe, Kansas for Chicago to study architecture at Armour Institute, now Illinois Institute of Technology(IIT).

As an undergraduate (1936-1939), and later as a graduate student (1941-1943), Danforth established himself as a devoted and talented acolyte to Mies van der Rohe, serving as a draftsman and as his primary, if informal, English instructor. After serving in the Navy (1944-1946), Danforth returned to teach architecture at IIT until 1953, then at Western Reserve (now Case Western Reserve University) 1953-1959. When Mies van der Rohe announced his retirement, Danforth was tapped to take over as head of the College of Architecture at his alma mater. He served in this capacity 1959-1975. During his tenure, he refined and consolidated Mies van der Rohe's philosophies, deftly transforming the program into a larger, eminent center of study. This was accomplished in part through recruiting several prominent names, most notably Arthur Takeuchi, Myron Goldsmith, and David Sharpe .

His other professional activities included serving as a consultant to companies such as Nickel Stainless Steel and United States Steel. In recognition of his contributions as an architect and academic leader, Danforth was elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects in 1967.

An accomplished, if reluctant to perform, jazz pianist and collector of modern art, Danforth was known for his gracious demeanor, elegant persona, and signature bow-tie. His admiration for Mies van der Rohe extended to his personal life: he made his home for many years in the Mies-designed 860-880 North Lake Shore Drive apartment buildings.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE:
In addition to working as an architect, George Danforth was an educator, scholar, colleague, mentor, and friend. This collection attests to each of these roles. Materials are organized to best reflect the hierarchy of his interests: Illinois Institute of Technology and the Bauhaus dominate the majority of the correspondence, photographs, manuscripts, and printed papers. Within Series I, the "Architect Files," are arranged according to the individual architects with or about whom he communicated. Of these, two stand out in terms of bulk and significance: Ludwig Hilberseimer and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.As executor of Hilberseimer's literary estate, Danforth oversaw reproduction and translation rights documented in extensive communication.The Mies van der Rohe contains letters, literary works, photographs, and printed papers about Mies van der Rohe that Danforth had collected over the years. Photographs include several portraits of Mies van der Rohe, as well as his daughters, students, colleagues, projects, and photographs from his memorial service. Collaboration between Mies van der Rohe and Danforth is documented in photographs of drawings and models made by Danforth under Mies's employ, as well as notes from the public television station WTTW's "Heritage Series" (1960) in which the two of them participated. In 1995, he traveled to Brno, Czech Republic to appraise the condition of Villa Tugendhat, in preparation for its restoration. The file includes correspondence, itineraries, notes, and reports, as well as sketches and specifications for the furniture originally designed for the house.The interviews George Danforth conducted during his 1972-1973 sabbatical from IIT offer some of most original information in the collection. Funded by a fellowship from the Graham Foundation, Danforth traveled to Germany to record interviews with associates of Hilberseimer and Mies van der Rohe, as well as gathering information about and collating Hilberseimer's papers. Interviewees include Ernst Neufert, Werner and Ursula Graeff, Julius Posener, Wils Ebert, Karl Otto, Alfred Roth, and others.In addition to the photographs found in Series I, Series II contains several portraits of George Danforth, both alone and with others, including Carl Sandburg. Snapshots of others include Walter Peterhans, Lora Marx, Selman Selmznagić.Series III contains printed papers recording some of Danforth's professional activities over the years, including his 1944 submission for the "Designs for Postwar Living" Competition in Arts and Architecture. This series also includes information about "Chicago Dynamic," the week-long event sponsored by United States Steel intended to highlight Chicago's architectural heritage (1957); other participants included Frank Lloyd Wright and Carl Sandburg. Other corporate-sponsored events include Nickel Steel's "A Lecture Tour of Australia by George Edson Danforth: Recent developments in the uses of stainless steel in the United States of America." Series IV contains a biographical file along with miscellaneous printed papers and letters. Series V contains audio cassettes, most consisting of interviews regarding Mies van der Rohe, Hilberseimer and other Bauhaus architects and artists.
