Tafel Finding Aid is Complete!

The Edgar Tafel Archive has now been fully arranged and cataloged and is open for research! Please browse through the online finding aid I created and read more about every file that the archive contains.

Here is the link to the finding aid: http://findingaids.cul.columbia.edu/ead/nnc-a/ldpd_10226981/summary

It has been a pleasure working with Tafel’s archive and researching about him. I hope that other archivists and researchers will benefit from the Edgar Tafel Archive as well.

Tafel house to be demolished?

From http://my.journaltimes.com/post/wright-in-racine/newlydiscovered_tafel_home_may_be_razed.htmlA house designed by Edgar Tafel between 1948-50 is being threatened to be demolished. The house was originally designed for Carl and Marie Albert and is found at 4945 N. Main Street, in Racine, Wisconsin.

Read the original article here. A correction to the article states that the house may have been a collaboration between Tafel and others.

The Tafel archive contains his project files and drawings. The project files are in cue to be processed; it is possible that more information on the Albert House will be found!

Any updates on the house will be posted!
