Columbia University's Avery Architecture Library has a large
collection of vintage catalogs in their Classics collection. I
recommend seeing if you can access the Avery Index online at the
Columbia University website. If not, call the Avery reference
librarian; they are usually very helpful. Perhaps they can help you
access the index online, or look a few things up for you. If you
need someone to look at any items found, the Preservation Department
would likely have a student eager to do some interesting research
for a minimal fee.
