George A. Fuller Company Photograph Collection (KC0080)
The George A. Fuller Company is a well-known international firm founded in 1882 with corporate headquarters in New York, New York, which specializes in building construction and construction management. Early in the twentieth century the Fuller Company built many major U.S. government buildings, including the Lincoln Memorial and the National Cathedral. The Company was responsible for the construction of several major buildings in Kansas City, Missouri.
This collection consists of construction site photographs for buildings which the George A. Fuller Company built in the period 1911 through 1921. The photographs document progress on the construction of these buildings, and at times document the process from the removal of a previous structure through the completion of the new building. Included are the Union Station (1911-1914); the Railway Exchange Building (1916); Children’s Mercy Hospital (1916-1917); Temporary Barracks at Fort Riley, Kansas (1917); the S.S. Kresge Building (1919); the Federal Reserve Bank (1920-1921); and the Nelson Memorial Chapel (no date). 1911-1921.
