ACQUISITION INFORMATION:The collection was a gift from Charlotte B. Carrara to the Ryerson and Burnham Archives in 1997.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH:
Arthur A. Carrara was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1914 to an immigrant Italian laborer who worked for the firm that supplied terra cotta ornament for the buildings of Louis Sullivan. Carrara grew up in the Lakeview neighborhood on the North side of Chicago, and continued to live there for most of his life. While in high school, one of Carrara's teachers recognized his nascent interest in architecture and accompanied Carrara and several other students to Frank Lloyd Wright's 1930 architectural exhibition and lecture, "To the Young Man in Architecture," at The Art Institute of Chicago. In 1931, Carrara graduated from the Smith-Hughes architectural course at Lane Technical High School, and began his study of architecture and engineering at the University of Illinois, from which he graduated in 1937. After college, Carrara worked briefly for Herbert B. Beidler, a Chicago architect, and John S. Van Bergen, formerly a draftsman in Wright's office.

During World War II, Carrara served with a topographic mapping battalion in the southwest Pacific theatre. While researching duplicating techniques for army engineer intelligence, he conceived the idea for the permanent transfer print, which he created several years later. In 1943, while stationed in Australia, he was commissioned by the Australian government to design the Cafe Borranical in Melbourne, a teahouse in which he incorporated his theories of the use of hydraulics and magnetics in architecture. In 1944, he was invited to assist in the organization of the City Planning Commission in the Philippines and in the planning for the rebuilding of Manila and Cebu. In 1947, Carrara was commissioned to design the Centro Escolar University in Manila, which had been destroyed during the war.

Carrara established his own architectural practice in Chicago in 1946 and opened a second office in Buffalo, New York, in the mid 1960s. The work he produced over the course of his career included not only private residences and corporate buildings but exhibition spaces and industrial products. He also exhibited his work in one-man shows and juried exhibitions and presented several lectures. Arthur A. Carrara died in 1995.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE:
This collection documents Carrara's career as an architect, exhibitor, designer, and lecturer. Series I and II contain articles, correspondence, original sketches, photographs, plans and specifications related to his architectural projects and exhibitions. The architectural projects are predominantly single-family residences, though public and commercial building types are also represented. Series III is comprised of typescript and handwritten copies of lectures presented by Carrara, along with related documents. Articles, pamphlets, photographs and other materials related to Carrara's industrial design projects form Series IV. Finally, Series V contains Carrara's awards, office correspondence, printed materials, and writings.

ORGANIZATION AND ARRANGEMENT:
Documents originally housed in albums have been integrated into the following series to facilitate the location of items and to more properly house the documents. Photocopies reproducing the format of the original albums are located in the collection file in the Ryerson and Burnham Archives office.

SERIES I: ARCHITECTURE PROJECTS. Arranged alphabetically by project name. Within each project, materials are separated into subseries--correspondence, drawings and specifications, office papers, photographs, published materials--and within each subseries, items are arranged chronologically.

SERIES II: EXHIBITIONS. Arranged chronologically. Within each exhibition, materials are separated into subseries--correspondence, drawings and specifications, miscellany, and published materials--and within each subseries, items are arranged chronologically. Notes under the exhibition titles indicate those exhibitions that were designed by Carrara and those in which he participated.

SERIES III: LECTURE MATERIALS. Arranged chronologically.

SERIES IV: DESIGN PROJECTS. Arranged chronologically.
