Stonorov, Oskar Gregory

Oskar Gregory Stonorov Collection (083), Architect, 1905-1970

Oscar Stonorov was born in Germany and worked in the office of Andre Lurcat in Paris, France before emigrating to the United States in 1929. He is known as a housing specialist and designed a number of modern housing ventures in the Philadelphia area, including the Carl Mackley Houses (1933-34), Schuylkill Falls Housing, and Carver Court. Stonorov partnered with Alfred Kastner (Kastner & Stonorov, 1932-1935)  before establishing Stonorov & Haws (1957).

This collection contains drawings from 1931-1960 including projects such as Howard City Housing Development, Glenwood Project for the Philadelphia Housing Authority, and Community Building for Middleton Housing.
