Description
The Arthur H. Levin papers comprise circa 80 linear feet of drawings, calculations and notes related to his work as a civil engineer and sometimes contractor and architect in Los Angeles, between circa 1946 and circa 1989. The papers document the structural design of commercial, industrial, and especially hillside dwellings in the Los Angeles area. Client ledgers provide an index to the bulk of the drawings and papers, which are arranged by client name, and chronologically.
