Vincent Russoniello was born in St. Andrea de Conza, Avellino, Italy and immigrated to the United States in 1905. His family settled in Scranton, Pennsylvania, where he worked in a stone quarry and trained to be an architect. Russoniello established his own firm in 1921 and practiced architecture in Scranton for over sixty years. His largest commissions were for more than twenty churches. Most of the churches were Roman Catholic nationality parishes or other immigrant congregations. The collection includes assignments from correspondence school courses, drawings, specifications, correspondence, brochures, and records from Russoniello's architectural firm. The bulk of the collection is architectural drawings.
