Spanish Colonial Architecture as Represented in the Alexander Architectural Archive is a collection of digitized drawings and photographs of eighteenth-century Spanish missions and San Antonio's Governor's Palace. These records, dating mainly from the 1920s through the 1950s, reflect how the structures looked before various efforts of restoration and reconstruction. Selected from collections within the Alexander Architectural Archive, they include works by Harvey P. Smith, Stewart King, Ayres and Ayres, Robert Leon White, and measured drawings by UT Austin School of Architecture students in the Texas Architecture Archive.
