Gordon Munro Collection
Gordon Munro was one of the first naval architects to experiment with the design of motor-sailors and was employed by George Lawley & Son yard for part of his career. In 1968 his widow gave his plan files, photographs and models to MIT. The plans, roughly 300 in number, are filed by design number and cataloged by both number and name.
