Biographical Sketch of Paul Cret

Born in Lyon, France in 1876, Paul Cret attended the Ecole Des Beaux-Arts in Paris from 1897-1903. Upon graduation, he accepted a teaching position at the University of Pennsylvania where he taught until retiring in 1937. During his tenure as a professor in design, the architectural program enjoyed a nationwide reputation for excellence.

Cret established a successful practice in Philadelphia specializing in the design of public buildings. His firm was particularly adept at garnering commissions through architectural competitions. Among such commissions were the Pan-American Union Building (1907-1917) in Washington, DC and the Indianapolis Public Library (1914-1917). His designs represent the height of the Beaux-Arts movement in the United States, characterized by the symmetrical, axially disposed plans with elevations articulated by historicist detailing derived from antiquity and the Renaissance. This style was found appropriate to monumental public buildings of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Cret was a master with Beaux-Arts principles of design, but his true genius was in his ability to synthesize this style with the new modernist values.

Cret's most productive years were between 1919-1930. He received commissions for war memorials and bridges, such as the Delaware River Bridge (1920-1926). In 1928 he joined the planning commission for Chicago's Century of Progress Exposition of 1933. It was the public buildings, most notably the Detroit Institute of Arts (1919-1927) with its innovative galleries designed in styles appropriate to the art on display that established Cret as one of America's foremost architects.

In 1930, Cret was retained by the University of Texas as consulting architect for the development of a master plan for the Austin campus. By 1931 the creation of the Permanent University Fund, based on oil income for state lands allowed the University to begin construction on the buildings that were, up to that time, ideas on paper. During the next fifteen years, Cret continued his comprehensive building design for the University of Texas' Austin campus. Cret died in 1945, but his firm, which changed its name to Harbeson, Hough, Livingston and Larson, continued his work, focusing on the completion of the buildings facing the south mall. The firm is known today as H2L2 Architects/Planners.

Series B: Photographic Material

Series Abstract
The Photographic Material series consists of approximately 2,633 photographic prints (most of the photographs are bound in scrapbooks, 2 bound photo print albums of 103 b/w 8x10"), and 6 photographic negatives. All copyright is retained by H2L2 or the photographer listed on the piece. Subseries were created for separate series of photographic materials and subgroups were created for each original container such as binders and boxes. An attempt was made to keep material in the original order as found in their original containers. This series is not completely processed, see the archive's staff for more information.
Series B1: Streamline Trains Budd (1934-1957)
Series Abstract
The photographic material found in this subseries consists of 252 black and white photographic prints (primarily 8 × 10") originally filed in five black binders labeled A-F (binder C was not received). A sample binder was kept as an example. Each binder is treated as its own subgroup. Some prints are annotated on the verso. Verso annotations are added to the folder title if they offered additional or conflicting information. The numbers found on the binder spines and the photographic prints are presumed to be Project or Commission numbers. The spine numbers are often not correct.
Series B1a: Binder A, Streamline Trains Budd (1934-1947)
This binder is identified by the spine markings: "278-379 Streamline Trains" and call number "A D-below 839A". The spine numbers are often not correct. Bookplate identification: "Accession number 338. Shelf mark D-below".
