The Herschel E. Shepard Digital Collection brings online the invaluable architectural records of Herschel Shepard (FAIA Emeritus, Architect), a leader in historic preservation in Florida.

The Shepard Collection at the University of Florida, documents Shepard's expertise in Florida's historic architecture and his many contributions to preservation and restoration in the state. Shepard’s work covers the entire range of Florida’s architectural past, including restoration of landmark buildings such as the 1902 Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee and reconstruction of such historically significant sites as the Second Seminole War era Fort Foster and the Spanish mission site of San Luis de Apalachee. The total collection includes hundreds of original drawings and thousands of documents and photographs. Included in this collection are all of Shepard’s works on the colonial buildings of St. Augustine. For more information about the Shepard Collection, see the Finding Aid.
