Biographical Sketch of Frank L. Moreland (1937-2010)

Frank L. Moreland was born in Fort Worth, Texas, on April 14, 1937, to Parker and Frances Moreland. He graduated from Paschal High School in Fort Worth, where he was active in the ROTC program. Moreland earned an undergraduate degree in Mathematics (with a minor in Physics) from Texas Christian University, as well as two Master's degrees in Architecture from The University of Texas at Austin and The University of California, Berkeley. Moreland completed advanced coursework in Architecture, Mathematical Economics, and Organizational Analysis at UC-Berkeley, and Advanced Study of Structures at The University of Texas at Austin. During his graduate work, Moreland became interested in the construction of earth-covered structures. Using emerging technologies to design and build safe, energy efficient earth-covered dwellings became his life's work.

Moreland served on the Man-Environment Relations faculty at Pennsylvania State University (1970-1972) and as a tenured faculty member at The University of Texas at Arlington (1973-1981). During this time, Moreland coordinated conferences on earth-covered buildings for the National Science Foundation (1975) and Department of Energy (1979) and edited the published proceedings from both conferences.

After designing his first two built projects, Moreland was dissatisfied with the performance of the contractors hired to build the residences. He decided to leave his tenured faculty position at The University of Texas at Arlington in 1981 so that he could begin his own firm, Moreland Associates. He became planner and contractor for the construction of his architectural designs and earth-bermed and earth covered dwellings and communities. During his career as an architect, Moreland worked for or with several firms including Kneer & Hamm (Fort Worth, Texas), Wilson & Patterson (Fort Worth, Texas), Albert Komatsu (Fort Worth, Texas), Paul A. Ryan (San Francisco, California), and Thos. A. Byrne, Inc. (Minnesota).

In addition to his architectural practice, concrete contracting, and teaching, Moreland worked as a structural investigator for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Department of State, and the U.S. Government Accountability Office. He published studies on earth-covered buildings for the National Science Foundation (NSF), the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), and FEMA.

Moreland published books and articles on earth-integrated architecture. His work was featured in several prominent journals (Journal of the American Institute of Architects), newspapers (Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, New York Times), magazines (Newsweek, The Smithsonian, Popular Science, and Better Homes & Gardens) and television shows ("Your New House" on the Discovery network, CBS Evening News).

Throughout his career, Moreland delivered lectures at a number of institutions including Harvard University, Georgia Tech, University of Montreal, University of Arizona, University of Wisconsin, University of Colorado, Louisiana State University, and New Mexico State University.

In retirement, he continued designing and overseeing the construction of earth-covered dwellings in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Moreland's professional affiliations included the American Underground Space Association (AUSA), the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the International Institute for Energy in Architecture (IIEA), and The Clearinghouse for Earth Covered Buildings. He served on the AUSA's board of directors from 1976-1987, and as AUSA president from 1986-1987. Moreland was an active member of the AIA's Energy Committee between 1978-1982.

Frank Moreland died in Fort Worth, Texas, on December 14, 2010.


Scope and Content of the collection

The papers of Frank L. Moreland document his life as a graduate student, faculty member at The University of Texas at Arlington, and as a design architect and contractor.

The bulk of the collection is contained in the professional and projects series. His personal student papers consist largely of research readings and several of his writings. Faculty papers contain correspondence between himself and administrators or academic colleagues. Of note in his office records are several versions of his website, through which Moreland self-published at least two books in DVD format, The Eagle: An Earth-Bermed Dwelling, copyright 2004 and The Standard: An Earth-Covered Dwelling.


Arrangement

The Moreland papers are arranged in eight series. The arrangement generally follows the Standard Series for Architecture and Landscape Design Records: A Tool for the Arrangement and Description of Archival Collections.
The Personal Papers series contains six subseries: Biographical Information; Correspondence; Student Work; Writings; Documentation of the Sale of Moreland Residence; and Travel. The subseries are generally arranged chronologically.
The Professional Papers series is divided into four subseries: Correspondence; Conferences, Associations, and Committees; Publications; and Writings. These subseries are generally ordered chronologically.
The Faculty Papers include correspondence and students' works.
The Office Records series includes: correspondence; information about trademarks, copyrights, assumed names, and registered names; printed versions of the Moreland Associates website; brochures for Moreland and Moreland Associates; templates and forms, both legal and construction in nature; and a rubber stamp created for the documents relating to the Coleman residence.
The Reference and Research Materials series is divided into two subseries: Photographic Materials and Printed Materials. Both subseries are arranged alphabetically by subject or title.
The Project Records series is arranged into multiple subseries, most subseries representing a project. When the collection was donated to the archive, Moreland submitted a group of selected projects that he arranged chronologically. Each built project was given a number by Moreland. The project materials were arranged to reflect this original order as closely as possible. Also included are conceptual and unbuilt projects.
The Slides series is not fully processed.
The Drawings series is not fully processed.

Reference and Research Materials contains materials not directly related to professional projects, but have a strong connection to his professional career. The series is divided into two subseries: Photographic Materials and Printed Materials.
Some of the textual materials in this series were created by Moreland, but the bulk of the materials were created by others, including well-known architects and academics, such as Ricardo Legorreta and Richard L. Meier. Notable subjects include earth-sheltered architecture, city planning, and waste management.
Subseries E1: Photographic Materials, 1992, 2001, 2002, undated
Subseries Abstract
Photographic Materials contains photographic prints, negatives, and slides of locations and projects not built or designed by Moreland. Some of the photographs were taken by Moreland, some were taken by others and sent to Moreland, and some are of unkown origin. The files in this subseries are arranged alphabetically by subject or title.

3.4 linear feet (7 manuscript boxes textual material, 98 color digital prints, 91 photomechanical transfer prints, 304 black and white photographic prints, 1,000 color photographic prints, 2 Polaroid prints, 147 black and white negatives, 924 color negatives, 28 35 mm slides, 11 CDs and 8 Hi-8 videos)

Series Abstract
The Projects series consists of drawings, documents, clippings, and photographic materials relating to built, unbuilt, and conceptual projects by Moreland. Projects are arranged chronologically and by project number (see list in subseries F1). These project numbers are included in the series title for each project.
The bulk of the series consists of construction photographs. Moreland photographed projects while under construction and revisited several of the sites years after the project was completed to document the enduring stability of the structures. Many of the photographic prints came to the archive in photo processing envelopes; the photographs are arranged in separate folders to retain this original order. Any notes found on the original envelopes were transferred to the archival folders. Additional photographs can be found in the Slides series.
