Center for American Architecture, Design and Engineering


Prior to the bequest of Paul Rudolph that established the Center, the Library's James Madison Council provided a seed grant in order to promote a Center for Architecture, Design, and Engineering. Additional support has come from the Graham Foundation, the Aldus Corporation, and the Historic American Buildings Survey/Historic American Engineering Record, and individuals, foundations, and corporations.

An immediate goal is the creation of the Center's own international support group.

A simultaneous objective is to secure additional funding to support the Center and its programs from the private sector, corporations, and foundations.

A long-range campaign will be dedicated to enlarging the permanent endowment to support the work of the Center and its programs into the future.

The Center seeks to create a special endowment to support an annual or biennial lecture that would alternate between scholars-in-residence and distinguished architects, designers, and engineers.

Paul Rudolph sincerely hoped that others would join him in supporting the work and programs of the Center. The Library of Congress is therefore pleased to accept contributions in Mr. Rudolph's name as additions to the Paul Rudolph Trust. Checks should be make payable to "the Library of Congress - Paul Rudolph Trust," and sent to the Development Office, Library of Congress, Washington, DC 20540-1400. Contributions are deductible for tax purposes to the full extent of the law.

Contributions to support the work and programs of the Center also can be made payable to the "the Library of Congress - Center for ADE Fund," at the same address, and are also deductible.
