ABSTRACT: Chicago architect David Adler practiced in Chicago with Robert Work from 1917 to 1928 and independently thereafter and was known for adapting classical and vernacular styles to his residential commissions. This collection contains a portrait photograph and photographs for three houses as well as photographs, color transparencies, and research files relating to the life and work of Adler and his sister, interior designer Frances Elkins, which were collected or produced by The Art Institute's Department of Architecture in preparation for the 2001 exhibition and publication, "David Adler, Architect: The Elements of Style."
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION:Black and white and color photographic prints, color transparencies, bound photographic prints, printed papers, photocopies, VHS videocassettes , CD-roms, Blueprints, sepia diazo print, ink on tracing paper, graphite on tracing paper and computer printouts.
ORIGINATION:These materials were created by several photographers, including Hutchinson and Luis Medina. The Field Residence photographs were collected by Adler's sister, interior designer Frances Elkins. The Reed Residence photographs were commissioned by the Reed family. The materials in the research files were assembled by the staff of the Department of Architecture at the The Art Institute of Chicago.
ACQUISITION INFORMATION:Photographs of the Mr. and Mrs. Marshall Field Residence were the gift of Mrs. Frances Elkins. Photographs of the Mrs. Kersey Coates Reed Residence were the gift of Peter Reed. Photographs of the Armour Residence were the gift of John J. Mitchell III. Drawings of the Boeckmann Residence were given by Sheila and Ann ffolliott in April 2012. Some materials are of unknown provenance though most other materials were transferred to the Ryerson and Burnham Archives from the Department of Architecture in 2003.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH:
David Adler was born on January 3, 1882, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and first attended the city's public schools before receiving a preparatory education at the Lawrenceville (New Jersey) School. He studied architecture at Princeton University from 1900 to 1904, after which, from 1904 to 1911, he traveled on architectural tours of Italy, Germany, and France and attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Following his return to the United States, Adler came to Chicago in 1912 to work in the office of architect Howard Van Doren Shaw, and established his reputation as a residential architect for many of Chicago's elite. Adler was known for his sensitive adaptations of classical and vernacular styles to fashionable urban townhouses and apartments and opulent country houses in Chicago and its suburbs, on the East and West Coasts, and in Honolulu, Hawaii. In addition, he often planned the landscaping and his sister, designer Frances Elkins, contributed interior designs for many of his commissions. Adler worked independently for most of his career, although he did have a professional association with Robert Work from 1917 to 1928. Adler was a member of the Chicago Chapter of the AIA and elected to its College of Fellows in 1941. He retired from practice in 1947 and died on September 27, 1949, in Libertyville, Illinois.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE:
The David Adler Collection is comprised of two discrete and separately acquired groups of materials, the first a set of photographs documenting the construction and built environments of several notable Adler residence projects, including the Mr. and Mrs. Marshall Field Residence in New York, New York, a bound album of photographs for the Mrs. J. Ogden Armour Residence, and the Mrs. Kersey Coates Reed Residence in Lake Forest, Illinois. This initial acquisition also includes one portrait of Adler. The second group of materials consists of black and white photographs, color transparencies, correspondence, and photocopies relating to the life and work of Adler and his sister, interior designer Frances Elkins, which were collected or produced by The Art Institute's Department of Architecture in preparation for the 2001 exhibition and publication, "David Adler, Architect: The Elements of Style." These images include both interior and exterior views, most of which were published in the exhibition catalog. The research files are comprised of correspondence between AIC Department of Architecture staff and various individuals and organizations as well as the fruits of this research: a sizable assemblage of primary source document reproductions (i.e., photocopies of birth certificates, correspondence, and architectural licences), secondary source reproductions (i.e., photocopies of newspapers, magazines, and brochures), as well as interview transcripts found in a dissertation by Diane Bower.

ORGANIZATION AND ARRANGEMENT:
SERIES I: PROJECT PAPERS. Organized into three subseries: Adler Projects, Adler Exhibition, and Non-Adler Projects, then alphabetical within each subseries.

SERIES II: PERSONAL PAPERS. Organized into two subseries: Photographs and Papers, the latter of which is further sub-divided into three files: David Adler, Adler Family and Miscellaneous. With the Papers subseries, folders have been arranged predominantly in the order in which they were received from the Department of Architecture.

SERIES III: AUDIO AND VIDEO. Arranged alphabetically.
