Dymaxion Chronofile

A Fuller Archives Story

What Happened? | Ted Mills
We think you’ll enjoy Ted Mills’s interesting account of the history of the Fuller Archives, 200 linear feet of material representing Fuller’s almost 88 years of correspondence. This correspondence along with everything else, including his daughter’s report cards, were part of a giant scrapbook of sorts. Fuller called it the Dymaxion Chronofile. He cross-referenced its contents with 13,500 index cards. The archives also include “over 2,500 original sketches, blueprints, original posters, and working drawings,” 30,000 photos, 25,000 slides, 64,000 feet of film, 1,500 hours of audio tape, 35 file drawers filled with manuscripts, and much more.
