Eitel Bauer files, [ca. 1940-1985].

The series consists of files of Eitel Bauer from ca. 1940-1985. The files contain correspondence, subject files, surveyor's fieldbooks, boundary surveys, topographical maps, and architectural records all documenting Bauer's role in developing various land holdings of Cason J. Callaway. The files primarily reflect Bauer's involvement in the development of Callaway Gardens (Pine Mountain, Ga.) from the 1940s-1985 and construction of the Gardens' major facilities, Blue Springs Farms (Hamilton, Harris County, Ga.), the Harris County (Ga.) Airport, and his work in selecting and propagating superior pine trees. A few items pre-date Bauer's association with Callaway including construction records for the Callaway's Blue Springs estate (Harris County, Ga.) by Ivey and Crook, principal architects of the lodge and works of other architects including John Leon Hoffman and Henry J. Toombs; maps and drawings prepared by the Callaway Mill Engineering Dept.; and material on the development of Callaway's Troup County (Ga.) property, particularly Piney Woods subdivision in LaGrange (Ga.).
