Professional Papers [series]

The series Professional Papers covers Willeke's architectural career from his earliest architectural work with the Cincinnati firm of Rudolph Tietig & Walter H. Lee to his later work under his own Detroit based practice. The series is made up of two subseries: General and Commissions.

 
General [subseries]

The General subseries consists of material related to Willeke's career as an architect but not necessarily stemming from his actual architectural commissions, such as Willeke's collection of architectural book catalogues and other architectural publications. The material has been arranged alphabetically.

Commissions [subseries]

The subseries Commissions is made up of Willeke's project files. The subseries contains two sub-subseries: By Date and Undated. The project files under sub-subseries By Date have been arranged chronologically under their project name. The project files under sub-subseries Undated have been arranged alphabetically. When available, the commission number assigned by Willeke has been provided in a parenthetical note. The subseries contains paper records supplemented with architectural drawings and sketches. The paper records include correspondence, photographs, specifications, and project notebooks and accounts. The majority of architectural drawings are original pencil on tracing paper, though there are many blueprints and original ink drawings as well. The architectural drawings range from formal floor or elevation plans and mounted renderings to quick detail sketches or conceptual drawings. It is important to note that since many of the commissions contain both paper records and architectural drawings, single projects may be housed in multiple locations, whether in a box, tube, or flat-file drawer. For example, the paper records of Henry C. Bogle Residence are located in Box 6, while the project's architectural drawings are located in tube 4 as well as drawer 4, folder 25. As a result, it is important to carefully note the location of the material.
