Summary
There have several iterations of a Building Fund Committee during the College's history. The first was formed in 1849 to "ascertain and report to the College the probable cost of a lot and the sum necessary to erect thereon a building suitable for the accommodation of the College, and to suggest a plan for raising the funds estimated to be requisite for the execution of the project." In its most recent form, the Committee was likely re-established in the early 1900s when the College began exploring the idea of constructing a new, larger building. The current home of the College was completed in 1909, and the Committee may have been disbanded soon after. The Building Committee of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia was appointed on 6 April 1904, shortly after the Fellows elected to construct a new College building on 22nd and Ludlow Streets. It was disbanded in 1914, five years after completion of the 22nd Street building. This small collection consists of the records of the Building Fund Committee, 1883 through 1911, and an 1888 report of the Building Committee. Included in the records of the Building Fund Committee are account and subscription books (1884-1886 and 1903 to 1910), some correspondence regarding contributions to the building fund (1884-1886), and financial reports for the years 1903 to 1911. Previously catalogued as 10a 244
