  • In 1930, New York Architect John Russell Pope was selected to design the National Archives Building. Pope's neoclassical design included both practical and symbolic aspects for housing the nation's records. He proposed a monumental structure with highly decorative architectural features, giant Corinthian columns, 40-foot bronze doors, and inscriptions extolling the building's historical importance. Pope also designed the National Gallery and the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC.
