Contained here are the specifications for the Louis R. Wilson Residence in Chapel Hill. These are one of the few building specifications for North Carolina structures during this time period and one of the few records of architect Charles Barrett. The building was the house of Louis Round Wilson, librarian and first director of the School of Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He was the namesake for the Wilson Library on that campus.

Charles Barrett was a builder-architect who practiced in North Carolina during the early twentieth century. In Raleigh he designed the Bishop's House of St. Mary's School and houses in the Oakwood neighborhood. He also designed prominent churches in Louisburg and the Boyd-Kerr House in Warrenton. Barrett published Colonial Southern Homes (1903) and (with Frank Thompson) Plans for Public Schoolhouses.
