Schmertz was the long time editor of Architectural Record as well as a respected architectural photographer. Her collection includes photographs of buildings by Louis Kahn and Frank Lloyd Wright as well as correspondence with Walter Gropius and Paul Rudolph. The collection establishes a set of personal and professional connections in the world of architecture that will be interesting to students and researchers investigating design topics in the late 20th century.
