My sources for this quickie A&C history will be:

WOOD magazine A&C furniture

Pop WW A&C furniture projects

A&C furniture by Howard

In the Craftsman Style by Fine WW

Authentic A&C furniture projects by Pop WW

Craftsman Furniture projects by WW Journal

Pop Mechanics Mission Furniture l,ll,lll

Gustav Stickley Craftsman furniture catalogs

Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture by
Creeker Robert W. Lang

Articles from The Craftsman edited by
Gustav Stickley -Dover

The Furniture of Gustav Stickley by
