Abstract: The Historic American Buildings Survey was a national survey to record and catalog historic buildings. It began in 1934 as a federal make-work project to provide work for unemployed architects, draftsmen and photographers. It was initially funded and supervised by the Civil Works Administration and later supervised by the National Park Service, the American Institute of Architecture, and the Library of Congress, with a combination of private and Works Progress Administration (WPA) funds. William A. Bohnard was the first Northern Ohio District Officer. The collection consists of field notebooks, correspondence, articles, project histories, financial records, administrative forms, sketches, maps, blueprints, drawings, lists of buildings, and indexes of the HABS Northern Ohio District (District 22).
