Vonnegut & Bohn Collection Online

The Drawings + Documents Archive’s collection of drawings and photographs from the prominent Indianapolis architectural firm of Vonnegut & Bohn is now available online in the Ball State University Digital Media Repository. Materials include photographs and architectural drawings for 16 building projects in Indianapolis and Evansville, Indiana. The collection is part of the larger Wright, Porteous, and Lowe Architectural Records, and is the first series of the collection to be digitized. Plans include drawings for Indianapolis Public School #33, Kahn Tailoring Company, Merchants Building, Evansville Telephone Exchange Building, The Children’s Museum addition, a gas station, and the Vonnegut Hardware Store. Photographs depict the Atheneum, Herron School of Art, Roosevelt Building, Lyric Theater, and the daring move of the Indiana Bell Telephone Company Building.
