Scope and Contents
From the Series: This series consists of architectural plans of residences designed by Atlanta architect Leila Ross Wilburn. Comprised almost entirely of single-family residences, they represent an incomplete, yet substantial portion of her portfolio. Most of the plans feature side, front, and rear elevations, as well as foundation, floor, and roof plans. Wilburn published seven plan books and sold them to clients, including individuals, developers and builders in Atlanta, the State of Georgia, and the Southeast. Copies of pages from four of her publications are included in sets with corresponding plan numbers. On each page is a photograph of the exterior of the residence, a description of the property, and a copy of the floor plan. These records are divided into three subseries: (A) Clients, (B) Plans, and (C) Plan books. Subseries A is comprised of plans where the name of the owner or builder is known. The material is arranged alphabetically by the name of the client. In most cases a city or town is listed along with plan number and the number of pages. Subseries B features drawings where only the plan number is known. Items are arranged numerically according to the plan number. Subseries C contains four of Wilburn’s seven plan books: Low-Cost Homes; New Homes of Quality; Sixty Good New Homes, and Ranch and Colonial Homes. No chronological information for any of the material in this series is available.
