The Study of Greek Revival Architecture in the Seneca and Cayuga Lake Regions, by Clifford H. Ruffner, Jr., was originally created as a Bachelor of Architecture thesis at Cornell University in 1939.

The staff of Cornell University's Fine Arts Library thanks the family of Clifford H. Ruffner, Jr., author of this title, for permission to make a digital copy of this important and popular title. By doing so, we are able to extend access to its content to a much broader community.
