Description

Drawing unsigned, probably created by Ruth Havey when working in Beatrix Farrand's Office. Two drawings of the fence panel are signed and dated by Beatrix Farrand GD Q-3-13A and GD Q-3-13B, but Ruth Havey probably contributed to the creation of the drawing based on a correspondence, B:MB 1938.07.27.

5 different designs with a check mark next to C and D probably indicating Mildred Bliss' approval or disapproval of the design.

Title created by cataloger.
