Scope and Content

Sub-series consists primarily of office records from the firms of Erickson / Massey Architects in Vancouver and Toronto, and Arthur Erickson Architects in Vancouver, Toronto and Los Angeles. The documents are arranged into 10 dossiers, of which the Administration Records, General Office Records, Permenant Files, Public Relations and Marketing, and Reference and Documentation files pertain to the operation and activities of the architectural offices redominately from the fonding of Erickson / Massey in 1963, to the closure of the last Arthur Erickson Architects office in Vancouver in 1991. One related dossier consists of files concerning the professional activities of Arthur Erickson, including many of his awards and honours, and files of his design sketches. Other dossiers document Francisco Imported Furniture, a interior design firm that worked on many of Erickson's projects, and a few items relate to a 1985 exhibition about Arthur Erickson Architects sponsored by the Americas Society in New York.
