BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH:
Born Maria Ludwig Michael Mies in Aachen, Germany, in 1886, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe received his principal architectural training through apprenticeships with several noted German architects. During the 1920s and early 1930s, Mies was widely influential in codifying the International Style through his avant-garde built and unbuilt projects, including the Glass Skyscraper, the Tugendhat House in Brno, Czechoslovakia, and the German Pavilion in Barcelona. In 1930, Mies van der Rohe was named director of the acclaimed Bauhaus School in Dessau, Germany, leading a faculty of progressive architects, designers, and artists. After the Bauhaus' forced closure in 1933, Mies continued in private practice, often collaborating with interior designer Lily Reich. In 1938, Mies van der Rohe was selected by Amour Institute of Technology in Chicago, Illinois, to radically reshape an existing architecture program and to design a new campus for the school. Through his position as dean of architecture, the architecture program at Armour--renamed the Illinois Institute of Technology [IIT] in 1940--Mies van der Rohe attracted students from around the world to study with him and several Bauhaus colleagues, including Ludwig Hilberseimer, Walter Peterhans, and László Moholy-Nagy. While teaching at IIT, Mies also maintained a private practice, in which he completed such noted commissions as the 860-880 Lake Shore Drive Apartments and the Federal Center in Chicago, the Edith Farnsworth Residence in Plano, Illinois, and the Seagram Building in New York City. After Mies' controversial dismissal from IIT in 1959, he continued in private practice in Chicago until his death in 1969.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE:
This collection documents the official side of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and there is little of a personal nature. Series I, General Correspondence, pertains mostly to requests for information, photos or speaking engagements related to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's private architectural practice. Noted correspondents include Otto Bartning, George Danforth, Enrique del Moral, Charles Eames, Sigfried Giedion, Walter Gropius, William Lescaze, Erich Mendelsohn, Reginald Malcolmson, Richard Neutra, G.E. Kidder Smith, and Miroru Yamasaki. The very general nature of the material in this series indicates Mies van der Rohe's international reputation and the amount and variety of unsolicited mail that he received. Much of this correspondence is unanswered. Series II, Biographical Information, contains correspondence, memos, and publications specifically about Mies van der Rohe and his life accomplishments, with additional information about his family. Series III, Buildings and Projects, primarily contains periodical publications about Mies van der Rohe's non-IIT architectural designs. Series IV, Illinois Institute of Technology, contains correspondence, inter-office, memos, essays and writings, invitations and announcements, and publications relating to Mies van der Rohe's role on the faculty of IIT and, to a lesser extent, about his colleagues and students. It also contains publications about the buildings on the IIT that Mies van der Rohe designed. Series V, Miscellaneous, contains primarily correspondence and publications about the work of other architects.
