Architect Royal Barry Wills was known for his mastery of the Cape Cod House. Historic New England acquired the Royal Barry Wills Associates Archive in 2013, and is now digitizing the collection of 11,000 items to be searchable online in 2019. $70,000 remains to be raised to fund this work, which includes:

  • Arranging and describing the collection and creating digital online catalogue records

  • Rehousing the collection in archival folders and storage units to ensure preservation

  • Digitizing 6,000 architectural drawings, 4,000 photographs, and 1,000 other items such as scrapbooks and manuscripts
