Carroll, Grisdale & Van Alen

Carroll, Grisdale & Van Alen Collection (087), Architecture Firm, 1946-1973

Carroll, Grisdale & Van Alen was formed in 1946, when William L. Van Alen (1907-2003) joined J. Roy Carroll, Jr. (1904-1990) and John T. Grisdale (1904-1985), who had formed a partnership the previous year. The reputation of the firm was quickly established with important commissions for the City of Philadelphia, including the Youth Study Center and the International Airport.

The collection comprises 55 architectural drawings and 21 photoprints, documenting 23 projects designed between 1946 and 1978 by the firm of Carroll, Grisdale & Van Alen and its successor firm, J. Roy Carroll, Jr. & Partners.
