Some papers created by Edward Frick are contained in the Weihe, Frick and Kruse Collection maintained at the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), College of Environmental Design (CED) Archives, Berkeley, CA. The CED web site said of this collection: "The bulk of the Weihe, Frick & Kruse collection consists of records documenting Weihe, Frick & Kruse projects. The collection also contains records from predecessor firms of Brown & Frick, and Bakewell & Weihe, as well as material created by the successor firm of William B. Fox. Materials include a few student drawings by Edward Frick and project files and drawings of Frick, and Bakewell & Weihe. Project files and drawings also document Weihe, Frick & Kruse projects, as well as Grace Cathedral, the largest project in the collection."
