The Donald A. Kimball Architectural Papers are an example of the work of a Michigan Architect practicing largely in mid and northern Michigan during the late 1930s through the mid- 1950s. The papers are comprised wholly of visual architectural material representative of the spirit of the times. The papers include renderings, architectural drawings, specifications and photographs of Kimball’s buildings, and personal papers. Most of the architectural materials are for buildings in Saginaw and Midland, while a few are for buildings in Grand Rapids, Gladwin, and Bay City, Michigan, but there are oversized architectural drawings for buildings in Santa Barbara, California.
An additional Kimball collection is held at the University of Michigan in the Bentley Historical Library.
