Canizaro Cawthon Davis has donated our founding firms’ architectural papers to Mississippi State University. Canizaro Cawthon Davis is a Jackson based architecture, planning and interior design firm and is successor to the firms James T. Canizaro Architects and Canizaro Trigiani Architects. The archives include building design drawings and correspondence spanning the years 1938 to 1980. This collection is unique because it includes complete papers for most projects from that period of the firm’s history, including design sketches, working drawings, photographs, proposals, and correspondence with owners and contractors. It offers a fascinating window into the architectural world of Mississippi in the mid-20th century, as traditional and modern designs lived side by side. The projects include notable Mississippi landmarks such as St. James Episcopal Church in Jackson, Armstrong Tire and Rubber plant in Natchez, Trustmark National Bank in Jackson, and St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Biloxi. Steve Davis, AIA, partner at Canizaro Cawthon Davis, states “We are proud of the legacy of our founding partners and the people who worked with them through the years. We are happy to allow others to explore the work they created. Mississippi State University will provide the environment to make these more readily available.” The archives will be scanned and posted in the university’s digital collections.
