The Alfred Browning Parker Architecture Archives Endowment is intended to support and strengthen the Architecture Archives at UF. The endowment is named in honor of Professor Emeritus Alfred Browning Parker, the distinguished Florida architect and UF alumnus. The endowment will support scholarly research, historic preservation, and the education of future students. Specifically, the endowment supports the acquisition, preservation, processing, and storage of archival drawings and other historical records that document Florida architecture and architects.
As a partnership between the University of Florida Smathers Libraries and the School of Architecture since 2004, the Architecture Archives has become a leading repository for historical records pertaining to the architects and architecture of Florida. The collections support scholarly research, historic preservation, and the education of future students.
