CA EDM MS-794-1 · Series · 1948 - 1953
Part of James N. Stephens fonds

The bulk of this series consists of oversize residential and commercial plans. To impose order, the residential plans were separated according to those with a client name attached (and location if both are present); those with a location only attached, and general plans without identifying details. Within these categories, the plans were further organized chronologically. The same process was used for organizing the proposed commercial plans, although chronology was not as easy to establish. There is one file of advertising material.

CA EDM MS-794-4 · Series · 1968-1979
Part of James N. Stephens fonds

With many years of experience with all phases of architectural design and project management, James N. Stephens once again established his own company. He specialized as a building designer, contractor, and remodeler, and took on many residential and commercial projects as evidenced by the plans and documents found in this series of records.

There are five small files of textual records, and two files of photographs related to theme art for basement rumpus rooms, and a residence built for the McQuarrie family in Phoenix, Arizona.

The plans include smaller legal sized plans. Many of the plans in this series bear no identification, and cannot be attached to a particular client or location; in some instances this is because the plans are intended to be generic and built when ordered, but in many other instances, plans have become loose from supporting drawings. The plans have been arranged into plot plans, proposed residential, proposed commercial, and drawings and sketches.
