Cadet drawings, class assignments and exercises

Identifier: MS-0203
A collection of 19th century cadet drawings (approximately 200 items) completed primarily as assignments for Professor Thomas H. Williamson's architecture, engineering, and drawing courses at the Virginia Military Institute.

A few of the drawings were completed for a geometry course and other mathematics courses, or were not class assignments.

Some of the geometry drawings are signed by the supervising professors, including e.g. Superintendent Francis H. Smith, who also taught math, and Stapleton Crutchfield.
