Architect, Scholar, Educator, Photographer
Walter Eugene George, Jr., 1922-2013, was active in historic preservation, architectural practice, scholarship, and education in Texas since the early 1960s. George directed historic preservation and rehabilitation projects, maintained a professional architectural practice, and taught numerous students through hands-on experiences in the classroom and the field. His photographs, many of which have been published, document his extensive travels and his interests in historic architecture in Texas and around the world. Many of his architectural interests were in collaboration with his wife, architectural historian Mary Carolyn Hollers George.
The selections in this exhibit illustrate the wide range and depth of information George made available through his donation to the archive.
This exhibition features over 100 selections from the Walter Eugene George, Jr. Collection at the Alexander Architectural Archives. Materials in this exhibition include photographs, drawings, plans, correspondence and other papers. The selections in this exhibit are intended to illustrate the wide range and depth of information George made available through his donation to the archive, but they comprise only a small sampling of the collection's 16,000 photographs, 500 architectural drawings, and more than 9 linear feet of professional papers and reference files.
