The City of Madison has digital copies of design documents that were completed by the firm Law, Law & Potter (today: Potter Lawson) in the 1930's.  These documents detail some of the construction work that was done on the building to complete it's conversion from a sugar beet factory to a feed mill.  If you are interested in obtaining digital copies of these documents, you may contact Dan Rolfs.  Anyone interested in obtaining these documents is required to sign a release and waiver of liability.
