1. Miscellaneous C.2 BecVar, Arthur N.; unpublished Note that this proposal, though it has been filed with Merton's manuscripts, is not written by Merton but by industrial designer Arthur BecVar. It includes drafts of proposals for a retreat center ("hermitage and cultural center") with plans for how it would be used and details about its construction. There are building plans and photographs of a small-scale model of the proposed building (in color and in black and white prints and color slides). In addition, there are color photographs of Merton posing with the designers and the model retreat house. «detailed view» -->
