Wilbur Peat served as director of the John Herron Art Museum in Indianapolis from 1929-1965. During that time he authored Indiana Houses of the Nineteenth Century, a seminal work on residential architectural styles. Indiana Landmarks holds much of Peat’s architectural collection. Among the items is a set of articles by Agnes McCulloch Hanna who wrote a column on Indiana architecture for the Indianapolis Star and Indianapolis News. Contained within the collection are copies of Hanna’s articles from 1928-1952.
Indiana Landmarks works to rescue and restore unique and significant architectural structures, including national landmarks, historic houses, barns, and bridges in Indiana. This organization strives to revitalize buildings and enrich lives through preserving Indiana's historic landmarks. University Library has collaborated with Indiana Landmarks to inform the general public about Indiana's historic structures and to provide online access to some of this organization's valuable materials.
