Includes papers on the Western New York Library Resources Council grant process and report, spreadsheets and papers produced during the digitization process.

Digital images of photographs, primarily 1904-1937, kept by the Martin Family, depicting the Darwin D. Martin house in Buffalo, New York, designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. These photographs illustrate the exterior, interior and grounds of the Martin House and the related structures, including the George Barton House. Included is an album showing the construction of the Martin House, July 23, 1904 to May 9, 1905; several views of the Martin House by Chicago photographer Henry Fuermann, some of which were used in an article about the house in the May 1908 Architectural Record; a series of portraits of Martin family members taken by Louise Mueller in 1912, which also show the interior of the house; and numerous family photographs. Also included are photographs of members of the Martin family and a few photographs showing the Martin family summer home "Graycliff" at Derby, New York. Later photographs show the house during the period of occupancy by Buffalo architect Sebastian Tauriello, circa 1954-1965, and during the occupancy of the house by State University of New York at Buffalo President Martin M. Meyerson, circa 1967-1970.

Digital images in Series II and III are searchable by keyword online in UB Libraries Digital Collections. Digital images in Series IV are available only on CD-ROM.
