The Sami Hassid collection contains four series: Personal Papers, Professional Papers, Faculty Papers, and Project Records.
The Personal Papers contain a detailed Personal History Documentation written by Hassid, many legal and financial papers relating
to the Hassid family's immigration to the United States from Egypt, and presentation materials and photographs done during
his doctoral studies. These latter materials include a presentation on the Acorn House in Massachusetts, an early model of
prefabricated housing designed by Cambridge architect Carl Koch. The Project Records contain photographs, drawings, and files
related to his architectural projects. Also included in these records are photographs and drawings of his award-winning design
of the AIA headquarters in San Francisco. Much of the collection is made up of materials related to his career at the University
of California, Berkeley, including research materials on architectural education and design evaluation, and administrative
records pertaining to Hassid's academic career. These papers also contain information on Hassid's groundbreaking work with
Berkeley's Campus Planning Office..
