Biographical Sketch of Eugene George

Born in Wichita Falls, Texas, in 1922, Eugene George received his Bachelors of Architecture degree from the University of Texas in 1949. During his student period, his academic qualities were acknowledged by membership in Tau Sigma Delta (Mu Chapter, University of Texas, May 1, 1947), Honorary Society for Architecture and the Allied Arts. On graduation, he received the Mont San Michel and Chartres Award from the American Institute of Architects for architectural scholarship. His studies were interrupted during World War II in which he served as a pilot in the Eighth Air Force (England). Captured by the Germans, he spent almost a year in a POW prison camp (Stalag Luft I) in Germany. While in prison, he established and taught an introductory architectural course (see Goldwin Goldsmith: "Prisoner-of-War School Teachers." Am. Inst. Arch. J. 4: 183-184 O'45). He was awarded the WW II Air Medal (with 2 oak leaf clusters), Purple Heart, Normandy Campaign Medal, and three European battle stars. George received a Master of Architecture from Harvard University, where he was a student of Walter Gropius.

During a summer period, George worked for the firm of Giesecke, Kuehne, and Brooks (Austin). Following graduation he worked for Wiltshire and Fisher (Dallas) and Richard Colley (Corpus Christi). He was licensed to practice architecture in Texas (by examination 08-03-1950). Subsequently, he received a Certificate from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards as well as architectural licenses from the states of Kansas, Virginia, and New Mexico. With others he established his own firm (Pendley George and Bowman) in September 1952. Except for a brief tenure with the Austin firm of Page, Southerland, and Page (1970-1971) and serving as Resident Architect for Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia (1971-1973), George has always maintained a private architectural practice.

George is one of the leading architects of the historic preservation movement in Texas. He reactivated the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) in Texas during 1961 following a dormant period of more than two decades. In addition to preparing measured drawings for San Antonio's Mission of San Antonio de Valero ("The Alamo"), he was active in the documentation of historic buildings in the Rio Grande borderlands. Additionally, he documented historic buildings for HABS on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts during 1967. For the Texas Historical Commission, he documented Socorro Mission during 1979. His restoration projects include vernacular structures at Round Top, Texas (1969-1970), restoration at the Yorktown Battlefield and the Nelson Block, both in Virginia (1976, for the National Park Service), restoration of the Magoffin adobe in El Paso, Texas (1977), The Randle-Turner House, near Itasca, Texas (1977), The Sixth Floor (museum at the John F. Kennedy assassination site, in Dallas, Texas, 1987), and both the Willis-Moody House and the Quigg-Ballard Cottage, Galveston, Texas (1985-1987). He is well known for his research concerned with the preservation of adobe structures and his studies of the vernacular Hispanic building traditions of the southwestern borderlands.

While maintaining a professional practice, George also established a notable career as an educator. He taught in the architectural program at the University of Texas at Austin from 1957 to 1962, receiving from the Students' Association their Teaching Excellence Award during a convocation held April 2nd, 1960. At Lawrence, Kansas, from 1962 to 1967, he was chairman of the departments of Architecture and Architectural Engineering. In 1967, he was appointed Dean of the College of Architecture at the University of Houston, resigning in 1969. He resumed teaching at the University of Texas at Austin during 1975, including positions both in the Historic Restoration program in the School of Architecture and in the Architectural Engineering program in the Department of Civil Engineering until 1997. In 1997 he inaugurated a new graduate program at the University of Texas at San Antonio, where he is the first recipient of the Mary Ann Blocker Castleberry Endowed Professorship on Historic Preservation established by the San Antonio Conservation Society.

George has received numerous awards for his work in historic preservation including a 1978 award from the Austin Heritage Society for the conversion of an historic service station into a corporate office facility. He was awarded the Maharishi Award for Cultural Integrity, Invincibility and World Harmony for research concerning Hispanic cultures in 1979. From the Texas Society of Architects, he received an Honor Award for the restoration of the Randle-Turner House in 1982, as well as the Edward J. Romieniec, FAIA Award in 2001, for outstanding contributions in education. George was elected to the College of Fellows of The American Institute of Architects in 2004.

During the 1960s, George served as editor for the Texas Architect magazine. He has lectured in the United States, Mexico, and England on such topics as preservation technology, the architectural history of Texas, architectural education, and the history of construction technology. He has participated in numerous conferences. George has authored articles in such journals as Preservation, Fine Homebuilding, the Journal of the Association for Preservation Technology as well as in numerous conference proceedings. His book, Historic Architecture of Texas: The Falcon Reservoir, includes the architecture of ranch structures and towns submerged beneath the reservoir.

George has served on many committees including national AIA Committee on Historic Buildings, the Texas Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians, the Kansas Historical Committee, and the Texas State Board of Review for the National Register of Historic Places. He has additionally served during two sessions as the State Preservation Coordinator for the Governor's office. Walter Eugene George, Jr. has been listed in Who's Who in America since 1967. He is married to Mary Carolyn Hollers, an art and architectural historian.

Scope and Content of the collection

The Walter Eugene George Collection encompasses a diverse range of material types, including reference materials, notes, reports, publications, photographic materials, and drawings, which document the career and interests of Walter Eugene George Jr. from 1951 to 2007. The bulk of the materials date from the mid-1950s through the 1980s, and dates refer to the period of the material's publication or origination. The collection is organized into six series: Professional Papers (1853-2004, undated; 9.2 linear feet), Faculty Papers (1959-2007; 6 folders), Project Records (1958-1982; 0.8 linear feet), Oral Histories (2005-2010; 4 interviews), Photographic Materials (1958-2007, undated; approx. 21,000 items), and Drawings (1951-1979; approx. 500 drawings). In addition to materials for both historic restorations and new construction projects conducted by George, the collection contains research notes, reference materials and photographs indicative of his academic career and scholarly interest in the architecture of the Texas-Mexico border region, including sites in Starr and Zapata Counties. Materials pertaining to the Historic American Buildings Survey in Texas (1961) and Nantucket, Massachusetts (1967) are found throughout the collection. The bullk of the material covers sites in Texas, but Virginia is also well represented, reflecting George's work at Colonial Williamsburg and the Yorktown Battlefield at Colonial National Historical Park in Yorktown, Virginia. Travel photos represent many historic buildings outside the United States.

Series A: Professional Papers

Series A: Professional Papers consists of clippings, notes, manuscripts, reports, drafts, correspondence, ephemera, publications, and photographic materials that pertain to George's work as a practicing architect and preservationist. The Professional Papers series is divided into three subseries: Biographical information (1972-2005; 1 folder), Texas Society of Architects Committee on Historic Resources (1970-1985; 5 folders), and Reference Files (1853-2007, undated; 7.9 linear feet). The bulk of the material is in the Reference Files series, which includes clippings from architectural journals, brochures, pamphlets, and other ephemera collected by Eugene George about a range of topics in historic preservation and architecture. Most of the materials in the Reference Files subseries pertain to Texas (1853-2004, undated; 3.8 linear feet), but five other subseries are also represented: Preservation (1914-1999, undated; 1.3 linear feet), Conservation (1957-1999, undated; 0.6 linear feet), Landscape (1940-1999, undated; 0.6 linear feet), Architects (1943-1993, undated; 0.6 linear feet), and Construction and Engineering (1937-2004, undated; 0.8 linear feet). George's original order has been maintained.

Series B: Faculty Papers

Series B: Faculty Papers includes a small amount of material related to George's career as an architecture professor. Materials largely date from George's career as a faculty member at the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Kansas. The series includes correspondence, writings, course materials, and student papers.

Series C: Project Records

Series C: Project Records includes notes, reports, photographic materials, correspondence, reference materials, and specifications for both historic restorations and new construction projects conducted by George. This series is organized into two subseries: Historic American Buildings Survey (1961-1975, undated; 0.7 linear feet) and Professional Projects (1977-1982; 3 folders). The bulk of the material is in the HABS series, which documents George's involvement in the 1961 survey of Texas and the 1967 survey of Nantucket. The Professional Projects series contains specifications for George's South Austin Fire Station, the restoration of the Magoffin House in El Paso, and a research and restoration study for Socorro Mission in El Paso.

Series D: Oral Histories

Series D: Oral Histories consists of four interviews with George, three of which were conducted with staff of the Alexander Architectural Archive with respect to accessioning his collection. The fourth is an edited video interview by Robin Silberling on the building of Naranjal in Austin.

Series E: Photographic Materials

Series E: Photographic Materials includes over 20,000 items in the form of slides, transparencies, negatives, photographic prints, polaroids, and contact sheets (17.85 linear feet in five subseries), which provide visual evidence of George's teaching, historic preservation work, and travel. George organized the materials in large binders, and this arrangement has largely been preserved. The materials are organized into five subseries on the basis of format and original order: Photo records (1979-2007; 0.4 linear feet), 35mm slides (1958-2004, undated; 12,149 items), Photographic prints, negatives, and transparencies (1936-2004, undated; approximately 6,515 items), Mounted photographs (1978-1996, undated; 151 photographs), and 2.25 inch slides (undated; 1,997 slides). 35mm slides make up the bulk of materials in this series, but color transparencies of various sizes are also numerous (over 4,000 exposures). Subjects include historic architecture in Texas and the United States, building and preservation projects in progress, student work, and copy work in support of teaching and research. Photographs from George's trips abroad also document historic architecture in Europe, Asia and Central America. For more information on the organization of this series, see below.

Series F: Drawings

Series F: Drawings encompasses approximately 500 original architectural drawings and prints for some 30 projects. The series contains measured drawings of historic buildings in Texas restored under the supervision of George, including the Jordan-Bowles Homestead, near Grand Prairie (1975); the Friedrich Schob House in Victoria County (no date); and the Schumann House in Henkel Square, Round Top (nd). There are also copies of measured drawings for historic Texas buildings from the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), including the Janda Farm in Fayette County and the Claiborne Kyle Log House in Hays County.

The series includes examples of George's original designs for new construction, such as the residences for Patrick Gibbons in San Antonio (nd), Kent Kennan in Austin (1955), and William Carter in Austin (1961). Of particular note are the drawings for an office building for Nieman, Hanks & Puryear in Austin, an award winning rehabilitation project from 1978.

The series also includes material for historic buildings outside of the boundaries of Texas, including prints of measured drawings for various buildings at Colonial Williamsburg, executed while George was the resident architect from 1971 to 1973, and prints of measured drawings for Colonial National Historical Park in Yorktown, Pennsylvania from 1974 to 1975. There are also copies of measured drawings from the Historic American Buildings Survey, including the Robie House in Chicago and the Second Congregational Meeting House in Nantucket, Massachusetts.

George has also generously donated portions of his personal library to the Architecture and Planning Library. This collection is not fully processed. For more information, please consult Archives' staff.


 

Organization of the collection

Materials in Series A-C are maintained in George's original order.
The Texas materials in the collection (approximately 7 linear feet of the reference files and 10,000 photographic materials created prior to 1979) are arranged geographically according to George's original order. The United States Geological Survey designations for the 15-minute map series of Texas provided an organizing principle for George in ordering his reference and photographic materials. USGS designations are noted after place names in parentheses, reflecting George's original file labels: e.g. Austin (NH 14-6). Counties included in the coverage of each USGS area have been noted wherever possible. An index to the map designations is avalailable in the Reference Materials subseries of Series A: Professional Papers. The remainder of the collection is also in George's original order, and is arranged topically and geographically.
The photographic materials are arranged according to two different filing systems. From around 1958 to 1980, George stored photographs as 35mm slides arranged geographically. Texas materials in this arrangement are keyed to the USGS 15-minute map designations described above. In 1979, George began keeping detailed handwritten records of his photographs in log books and filing his photographic materials chronologically by a system of unique numeric identifiers. George assigned each exposure a frame number, starting with 1A, and recorded the date, subject and location, film, aperture, filter, lens, and notes on the exposure. An index to the photo records has been created by Archive staff and is available as an Excel spreadsheet, which may aid in identifying subjects and sites in Subseries E2: 35mm slides, Subseries E3: Photographic prints, negatives, and transparencies, and Subseries E5: 2.25 inch slides. Some of the photographs in Subseries E4: Mounted photographs are also labeled with identifying frame numbers. Entries in the logs do not guarantee that corresponding photographic materials were received by the Archive.
The drawings are arranged alphabetically by client and then by name of project.

The bulk of the material is in the HABS series, which documents George's involvement in the 1961 survey of Texas and the 1967 survey of Nantucket. Early drafts of the HABS manuals may be of particular importance to researchers in this area. The series also contains several worksheets for buildings considered for HABS, including some not submitted. George's color photographs from the 1961 Texas HABS survey are filed in Series E: Photographic Materials as 35mm slides. They are arranged geographically. Reference materials on Nantucket make up another part of this series; more reference materials can be found in Series A: Professional Papers.

Series E: Photographic Materials, 1958-2007, undated
14,104 color slides, 4,104 color transparencies, 1,353 negatives, 656 photographs, 530 polaroids, 61 contact sheets, approximately 20 leaves of manuscript materials (48 binders, 7 flat boxes, 4 slide boxes, 3 document boxes; 17.85 linear feet).

George's photographic materials include slides, transparencies, negatives, photographic prints, polaroids, and contact sheets (17.85 linear feet in five subseries), which provide visual evidence of his teaching, historic preservation work, and travel. George organized the materials in large binders, and this arrangement has largely been preserved.
The first subseries (1979-2007; 0.4 linear feet) consists of George's photo log books, which document photographs taken between 1979 and 2004, and are arranged chronologically. An index to the photo records has been created by Archive staff and is available as an Excel spreadsheet. Entries in the logs do not guarantee that photographic materials were received by the Archive.
The second subseries (1958-2004, undated; 12,149 items) is predominantly made up of 35mm color slides and is arranged according to George's two different filing systems: geographic (1958-1979/1980; 9,127 slides) and by frame number (1979-2004; 2,979 slides). A wide variety of subjects are included in this series, with copy work in support of George's teaching and research and historic buildings strongly represented. A detailed finding aid to the geographically filed materials is available as an Excel spreadsheet. The index to the photo logs (noted above) may be used in locating materials in filed by frame number.
Materials in the third subseries (1936-2004, undated; approximately 6,515 items) are diverse, including color transparencies, negatives, photographic prints, and polaroids. Around 600 images of the architecture of the Texas Borderlands, including copies of historic photographs of Roma and the Falcon Reservoir area, illustrate George's research interests. The remaining items are arranged in binders by frame number, according to George's photo log books. The index to the photo logs (noted above) may be used in locating materials in filed by frame number.
Mounted photographic prints make up the fourth subseries (1978-1996, undated; 151 photographs), documenting exhibitions of George's photography and his work as a photographer for architectural publications.
A fifth subseries (undated; 1,997 slides) consists of 2.25-inch color slides, each of which is marked with its frame number corresponding to the photo log books. George grouped materials in these series into broad topics based on geographic location and architectural period, reflecting their use as teaching and presentation slides.

E1: Photo records, 1979-2007
9 folders (0.4 linear feet).
In 1979, George began keeping detailed handwritten records of his photographs and filing his slides chronologically rather than topically, with the exception of trips abroad in 1980, which are filed geographically. His original intent in keeping the records was to improve his photography skills. George assigned each exposure a frame number, starting with 1A, and recorded the date, subject and location, film, aperture, filter, lens, and notes on the exposure. The records are available in their original handwritten format, or as a computer printout transcription for 1979-1987, provided by George.
box folder
23 1 Front matter, 1980-2007, undated
George stored the computer printout records in one large three-ring binder with inside pockets. These materials were stored in the folder pockets of the binder, or were filed in front of the first date divider.

E2: 35mm slides, 1958-2004, undated
12,106 slides, 29 color transparencies, 11 photographs, 3 color negatives, 1 folder of manuscript materials (40 binders, 0.2 document boxes, 12.5 linear feet).
Approximately 12,000 35mm color slides and over 100 other photographic materials document George’s teaching, historic preservation work, and professional interests. Subjects include copy work (including book illustrations, archival documentation, and architectural plans and drawings used in George's teaching and research), historic architecture in the United States, and travel and vacation photos from Europe, Asia, and Central America, with the bulk of the materials in Texas. The slides are maintained in their original binders as organized by George and are arranged into subseries reflecting George's two different filing systems: geographic (1958-1999, undated; approximately 9,200 items) and by frame number (1979-2004, approximately 3,000 items). A detailed finding aid to the geographically filed materials is available as an Excel spreadsheet. The index to the photo logs may be used in locating materials in filed by frame number; see Series E1: Photo Records.
Slides arranged geographically, 1958-1999, undated
9,127 slides, 11 photographs, 3 color negatives, 1 folder of manuscript materials (31 binders, 0.2 document boxes, 9.7 linear feet).
Prior to August 1979, George filed slides geographically and then chronologically. Within Texas, George separated slides by region according to United States Geological Survey designations (provided in parentheses), and then ordered the regions alphabetically. For a key to the geographic regions, see Series A: Professional Papers. Roughly half of the slides in this series are documented and identified with labeling on the slide mount. A detailed finding aid and inventory of the materials in this subseries, available as an Excel spreadsheet, provides more fine-grained access to specific subjects and locations.

Series Abstract
Entries are indexed in alphabetical order by Client's last name. If the client is not identifiable, the field will remain blank. Entries without client names are sorted by Project Name and listed before those that provide client's names. Project names are supplied by the cataloger, as title blocks on the drawings prove to be inconsistent and many drawings are not labeled. Dates are offered if they can be derived from the drawings or gathered from other authoritative sources. The term "drawing" includes both original works (such as pencil on trace paper, or ink on tracing cloth) as well as copies (such as sepia prints, blue line prints, etc.). This collection is not completely processed. For more information, please consult Archives' staff.
