An architectural survey of noteworthy historic buildings in Manitoba was undertaken between 1964 and 1970 by students from the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Manitoba, with sponsorship of the Manitoba Historical Society, and cooperation of the Archives of Manitoba and the Manitoba Association of Architects. The focus between 1964 and 1968 was on buildings in rural Manitoba, and from 1969 to 1971 on Winnipeg.
The students who conducted the survey were as follows: Bruce Pickersgill (1964), John Lewkowich (1966-1967), Andrew Little (1967, 1969-1970), Ernest Mayer (1968), Angus Cranston (1968), Norman Blackie (1969), and Gillian Moir (1970-1971).
Photographs taken during the survey are held at the Archives of Manitoba.
