Brief History of the School of Architecture

The School of Architecture was established within The University of Texas Engineering Department in 1910, when Dean T. U. Taylor of the Department of Engineering appointed Hugo F. Kuehne as the first faculty member of the School of Architecture. In 1920, the Department of Engineering became the College of Engineering, and the School of Architecture became the Department of Architecture within the College of Engineering. Architecture functioned as a "semiautonomous school" until it was granted full autonomy in 1951.

Scope and Content of the collection

The first 8 series document efforts to create endowed professorships to honor Edwin W. Carroll, John S. Chase, Bartlett Cocke, O'Neil Ford, Harwell Hamilton Harris, Karl Kamrath, Martin S. Kermacy, and Roland Gommel Roessner. These men were friends of the School of Architecture, prominent architects, and included several former faculty members. John S. Chase was the first African-American graduate student to receive a diploma from the School of Architecture.

Series in this collection also document the creation (1973) and activities of the Dean's Council. The 75th Anniversary of the School of Architecture in 1985, was preceded by a significant academic planning forum designated as the Goals Conference of 1984. Additionally, the development administration coordinated internal scholarships for students of Architecture, as well as numerous, smaller fund-raising campaigns and accepted receipt of gifts presented "in memorium."

Records related to development campaigns include correspondence, memorandums, programs, planning documents, application forms, order forms, membership forms, financial records, financial statements, billheads, receipts, scholarships, photographs and additional forms documenting the activities of the School of Architecture. Photographs include posed portraits used in donation solicitation brochures and images from award ceremonies or honorary events. Client brochure pages and photographs depict significant architectural building projects completed by architects honored by endowed professorships.

Series D: O'Neil Ford Chair in Architecture, 1978-1984

Series Abstract
Records relate to the proposal, financial development, and endowment of the O'Neil Ford Chair for the School of Architecture. The idea developed in 1978-1979 and was formally proposed to the University in 1980. Active fund-raising occurred primarily in 1980, 1981, and 1982. Highlights of the fund-raising campaign included a reception at the Littlefield House on the University of Texas Campus, hosted on September 19, 1980 and attended by O'Neil Ford, actor Gregory Peck, Mrs. Lady Bird Johnson, and Dean Hal Box. Grace Jones hosted a brunch in Salado, Texas on December 13, 1981. Members of the Endorsing Committee included Honorary Co-Chairs Gregory Peck and Nancy Hanks, joined by Committee Members Patsy and Marshall T. Steves, Liz Carpenter, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Rust Crosby, Lady Bird Johnson, Grace Jones, Margaret McDermott, W. L. Moody IV, Nancy Brown Negley, Edward L. Protz, and Darrell and Edith Royal.
Endowed chair positions required $500,000 in funding and the School of Architecture achieved this amount, benefitting from matching donations through the University of Texas Centennial Campaign of 1983. The School of Architecture records include files from Director of Development Joe Brown (who died in 1981), Assistant Director Valerie Dunnam, and Director of Development Vivian (Viva) Silverstein.
Documents include correspondence, development brochures, donor mailing lists, donor information, inner-departmental memos, hand-written planning notes, document drafts, press releases, clippings, donation processing forms, contact sheets and photographs.

Series E: Harwell Hamilton Harris Fellowship, 1983-1987

Series Abstract
The School of Architecture successfully endowed multiple fellowships to honor Harwell Hamilton Harris, who served as the Director of the School of Architecture from 1951-1955. The $50,000 campaign to establish a Teaching Fellowship was led by Dean Hal Box, with an Endorsing Committee chaired by David Barrow. The fund-raising brochure includes a photograph of the Trade Mart Court in Dallas, Texas, one of Harris's signature professional projects. Records also document the Harris exhibit funded by the Amon Carter Foundation. The successful campaign received the majority of donations in 1984 and 1985, and the approval of the Teaching Fellowship was announced on February 15, 1985.
Records include correspondence with Dean Hal Box, the Harrises, donors, potential donors, and School of Architecture administrative correspondence from Vivian Silverstein. Photo reproductions of donor checks, gift processing forms, and financial summaries of donations form the bulk of the records. The fund-raising brochure and several drafts are accompanied by photographic prints of Harris and his architectural projects. One of the photographic portraits was taken by photographer Man Ray.

Series F: Karl Kamrath Lectureship (formerly Regents Professorship) in Architecture, 1984-1987

Series Abstract
The campaign to raise $100,000 to endow the Kamrath Professorship occurred in 1985, 1986, and 1987, coinciding with Kamrath's 75th birthday in April 1986. Dean Hal Box collaborated with the Endorsing Committee, chaired by George P. Mitchell. Large donations from Warren S. Bellows Construction, Regent Jack Blanton of Scurlock Oil Company and Jim Reichert of the West Foundation were instrumental, but the School of Architecture was unable to raise $100,000. Instead, in 1987, the School proposed to modify the campaign to the Karl Kamrath Lectureship in Architecture.

Series I: Dean's Council of the School of Architecture, 1973-1990 [ongoing]

Series Abstract
Established in 1974, the Dean's Council of the School of Architecture served as a fund-raising and advisory forum for influential alumni and corporate friends of the School. To promote membership, Dean Charles Burnette organized several regional chapters: Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio. Correspondence, survey questionnaire responses, luncheon receipts, and membership forms document the activities of these councils. Ralph Spencer, the Director of Professional Affairs for the School of Architecture in 1974, led many of the initial campaigns. Individual membership cost remained $100 from 1974 until 1990.
A membership solicitation letter from February 9, 1990 explains that "the support of the Dean's Council has enabled the School to enhance the educational process for students. These discretionary funds provide support for student field trips and site visits, assistance with student competition expenses, Teaching Excellent Awards to outstanding faculty members, and publications such as NEWS, your alumni newsletter. This funding needs to continue year after year. The School cannot use state funds for these projects."

Series J: Goals Conference and 75th Anniversary of the School of Architecture

Series Abstract
To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the School of Architecture, Dean Hal Box organized the educational Goals Conference held October 26-28, 1984. A press release states that "two dozen individuals with expertise in different areas of architecture and architecture education have accepted invitations to gather in Austin ... the conference will help the school to establish a set of goals and objectives to guide its future development." Boone Powell, partner of Ford Powell and Carson, chaired the 75th Anniversary Commission and helped design the conference program to address five main topics: students, architecture programs, the planning program, scholarship and faculty, and facilities and staff. Invited essayists composed formal responses to conference prompts and discussions. Several events were held at the La Mansion Hotel in Austin (later renamed the Doubletree), in addition to The University of Texas campus.
Significant fund-raising by Jack Crosby and other members of the Anniversary Task Force supported the Goals Conference and 75th Anniversary activities. The School of Architecture also hired consultant Bryghte Godbold to advise in the planning and execution of the conference. Documents in the series include correspondence, financial solicitation mailings, financial records of donations and expenses, purchase vouchers, registration forms, travel and expense reimbursements, press releases, conference programs, agendas, and reports, as well as essays prepared for the conference.
