Note

Almost all of the folders were labeled by a previous processor, not by Van Nice himself. Therefore, it is unclear what his original folder titles were, or exactly how he organized these photographs. And so, architectural terms may have derived from Robert Van Nice or from our predecessors’ interpretations.
