Collection comprises architectural plans, drawings, specifications and photographs for residences and public buildings primarily in Rhode Island and New York by American architect Auguste Louis Noël. The projects, undertaken by the firm of Noël and Miller from roughly 1932 to 1965, include the Whitney Museum of American Art and several public buildings in Newport, R.I. and Long Island, N.Y..
Architect Auguste Noël was born in New York City and trained in architecture at the Beaux Arts school in Paris. He served his apprenticeship in New York, and set up his own office in 1920. He was later senior partner, with G. Macculloch Miller, in the firm of Noël and Miller, with a branch office in Newport, R.I. The firm was especially well known for its designs of stately residences, most of them on the East Coast. It also designed the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Museum of Racing, Saratoga, N.Y., and a number of public buildings at Newport.
