Custodial History

Architectural drawings of the Williams brothers, and photographic glass plate negatives (C. Milo Williams Photographs, SEAA Collection 149) were purchased by Samuel Wilson, Jr. at a sale of the contents of the Williams family home at 1035 South Carrollton Avenue, New Orleans, in the mid-1960s. Wilson gave the negatives to Tulane in 1968. He later gave the architectural drawings to Tulane in 1973.
