Biographical Sketch of Hugo Leipziger-Pearce (1902-1998)

Hugo Leipziger-Pearce was born on December 8, 1902, the son of a court-appointed expert on furniture and interiors of castles and the numerous manor houses in Silesia and neighboring Poland. Early on, he was introduced not only to beautiful interiors and to architecture in general but also to famous architect Hans Poelzig. Poelzig, until 1916, was the Director of the Art Academy in Breslau [the precursor to the Bauhaus]. After finishing the "Real Gymnasium" Hugo Leipziger-Pearce was enrolled in the Art Academy, where he was the student of several notable German architects of the time, including August Engell, Otto Mueller, and Adolph Rading.

In the 1920's, Leipziger-Pearce traveled and studied at the University of Hamburg studying art history and economics. While Leipziger-Pearce never completed any official course of study, an examination made later in the US determined that his studies were the equivalent of a Master's degree. He was admitted to the German Institute of Architects in 1927.

In 1927 Leipziger-Pearce returned to Breslau to open a practice with a colleague, Gerhard Schonborn. His first commission was a housing group with 64 units in Namslau. This was the beginning of mass housing, which would become the theme of his life: housing for everyone in a city for everyone.

In 1934 he accepted a position with an architectural firm Stephenson and Turner in Australia. His design for the firm's Women's Hospital in Melbourne, which Sir Arthur Stephenson wrote in 1955, "is still regarded as an outstanding instance of contemporary design," was prize-winning. His work in Melbourne brought him to New York to complete work on the Australian Pavilion at the 1939 World's Fair.

It was in New York that Leipziger-Pearce was given the unique opportunity to come to The University of Texas at Austin to develop a curriculum in city and regional planning. Leipziger-Pearce arrived at the University in 1939 and stayed until his retirement in 1974, with a brief stay in Germany from 1950-51, where the US State Department appointed him a "Special Consultant" to the US High Commissioner for the former American Zone. During his long tenure at UT Austin, Leipziger-Pearce initiated the Program in Community and Regional Planning and directed it for 19 years. He also worked with the Urban Planning Assistance Progam for Texas.

Hugo Leipziger-Pearce died on July 13, 1998.

Scope and Content of the collection

Correspondence, printed material, maps, photographs, and audio visual items (1920-(1955-1978)-1990) chronicle the urban planning and academic careers of Hugo Leipziger-Pearce.

The papers offer significant information about architecture courses at the University of Texas School of Architecture (UTSOA), focusing on community and regional planning, and urban planning education in general. The Oral Interview Series consists of a transcript and supporting documents. The interview documents Leipziger-Pearce's arrival in the United States and highlights his professional accomplishments.

The Printed Material Series contains the majority of writings by Leipziger-Pearce as well as articles and seminar proceedings he collected on the subjects of urban planning, urban problems, housing, and the environment. Brochures in the collection include published studies and master plans for several metropolitan areas in the United States and Europe. Many of Leipziger-Pearce's publications are available through the Architecture and Planning Library.

Leipziger-Pearce's professional planning activities documented in the files include Irving, Texas; Fort Worth City Center; the Lower Rio Grande Valley and projects in Germany. Many planning projects were done in conjunction with courses at UTSOA and involve student participation.

Photographs show aerial views of United States cities and historic sites in Mexico and Peru. Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) material in the Slide and Film Series represents the joint effort of AACOG and the UT Planning Department to develop multi-media and film presentations in areas of community and regional planning. These projects analyze area planning problems, establishing goals and a framework in which to achieve them. Presentations were done in conjunction with seminars aimed at increasing public interest in urban planning.

Two Films, One-Third of a Dream and Planning Versus or For the Individual were produced at UT. The latter is supplemented with a publication of the same name by Leipziger-Pearce. Material in this series has not been previewed and the contents of many items are unknown.
