Collection Details

Duane Lyman was born in Lockport on September 9, 1886. He attended Lafayette High School in Buffalo, graduating in 1904, and then went on to study architecture and mechanical engineering at Yale University's Sheffield Scientific School, where he earned his degree in 1908. He spent several years studying in Europe before returning to Buffalo in 1913 to begin with the architectural firm of Lansing & Bley. After military service in World War I, Mr. Lyman became a partner with Lawrence H. Bley in an association which lasted approximately 20 years and resulted in the completion of many notable buildings, such as the Saturn Club, Buffalo Country Club, and several academic buildings at the State University of New York at Buffalo (Main Street campus).

This collection chiefly reflects the schools and other public buildings, office buildings, and church structures which were designed by Duane Lyman for clients in Buffalo and Western New York State. Included are proposals, plans, job descriptions, budget estimates, and photographs.

Organized into three series:
I. Proposals and Job Description Booklets, 1950-1963
II. Photographs
III. Miscellaneous, 1911-1975.
