Biographical/Historical: The Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) committee put these surveys together. The Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) collection is among the largest and most heavily used in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress. The collection documents achievements in architecture, engineering, and design in the United States and its territories through a comprehensive range of building types and engineering technologies. Administered since 1933 through cooperative agreements with the National Park Service, the Library of Congress, and the private sector, ongoing programs of the National Park Service have recorded America's built environment in multi-format surveys comprising more than 350,000 measured drawings, large-format photographs, and written histories for more than 35,000 historic structures and sites dating from Pre-Columbian times to the twentieth century.
