Francis Everett Fuller graduated from Iowa State College (University) with a B.A. (1929) in Landscape Architecture. During his time at Iowa State, Fuller was an active member of the Vistonian Club, the Frisbie Fellowship, and the Iowa State College Dramatics Club. This collection (circa 1920s-1930s) consists of a photograph album with images of the Iowa State campus from the 1920s and landscape architectural treatments in Iowa and Illinois in the 1930s. Photographs of the Iowa State campus include images of Mackay Hall, central campus, Parks Library, Alumni Hall, Hughes (Friley) Hall, State Gym, Clyde Williams Stadium, and the campanile. There are also photographs of the 1925 and 1926 VEISHEA parades as well as the May Fete during VEISHEA week of 1926. Photographs of landscape architectural treatments include images of gardens, homes, home development, parks, and lakes. These photographs were taken in the towns of Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Winnetka, and Ames in Iowa, as well as the towns of Moline, Chicago, Dixon and the Lake Forest area in Illinois. In particular, the photographs feature the J. Ogden Armour residence, the Cyrus McCormick Place, the Mrs. Rockefeller McCormick Place, a Herman W. Nelson development, the W.M. Butterworth home, the Clyde L. Herring home, and the Carl Weeks home. There are also photographs of Blackhawk Monument and Castle Rock in Byron, Illinois.
