BULLETIN


Vol. 8, No. 1


W. T. ARNETT NAMED DIRECTOR OF SCHOOL OF
ARCHITECTURE AT UNIVERSITY
W. T. Arnett, professor of architecture, has been
named director of the School of Architecture and Allied
Arts at the University of Florida. He replaces Fred T.
Hannaford, acting director of the school, who resigned
to accept a position as head of the division of structural
design at the University of Oregon.
Mr. Hannaford, a graduate of the State College of
Washington, came to Florida in 1926 as structural de-
signer for Mr. Rudolph Weaver, FAIA, architect to the
Board of Control and director of the School of Architec-
ture and Allied Arts from 1925 until his death in 1944.
Mr. Hannaford taught courses in building construction
and reinforced concrete design in the school until 1935.
At that time the work in architecture at the University
was reorganized on the project method. This method of
teaching, in which related material is integrated, is now
employed throughout the entire course in architecture,
and the projects of the various courses are so integrated
that the curriculum, instead of being a series of separate
subjects, is a unified and correlated whole.
In the project method as developed at the University
of Florida, structural design and the study of materials
and methods of construction have become definitely cor-
related parts of the planning and the design of buildings.
Mr. Arnett is a graduate of the University of Florida,
having received the B. S. degree in Architecture in 1929
and the master's degree in Architecture in 1932.
Mr. Hannaford and Mr. Arnett were both instru-
mental in the development of the project method at the
University.
Mr. Arnett has just recently returned to the campus
after serving four and a half years in the Army. At the
time of his discharge from the Army Arnett held the
rank of lieutenant colonel. Mr. Arnett received the Legion
of Merit decoration for "efficiency and organization" as
post control officer of Camp Rucker, Ala., where he raised
the standard of the camp to a top rating.
Commenting upon the appointment Dr. Tigert said,
"The University is fortunate in having a man of the high
educational qualities and professional acumen of Mr.
Arnett to head its school of architecture and allied arts,
and although we regret to lose the services of Mr. F. T.
Hannaford, who has accepted a high position at the Uni-
versity of Oregon, we know the future holds much for both

of these gentlemen." (Quoted from the Gainesville Daily
Sun.) ,

REPORT ON 31st ANNUAL MEETING: . The 31st
Annual Meeting of the Association actually got under way
at the Roney Plaza Hotel, Miami Beach, on the night of
November 8, 1945, with a meeting of the officers and the
Board of Directors and several others who arrived early.
The official meeting was called to order by President
Stripling about 10 o'clock the following morning. The
group was welcomed by Mr. Thomas Smith, Miami Beach
Convention Director. Mr. Greeley gave a brief response
for the Association.
The principal business handled at the convention was
the matter of unification. Miss Marion Manley, Chairman
of the Unification Committee, read the proposed Constitu-
tion and By-Laws for the new Florida Association of
Architects of the American Institute of Architects. Rus-
sell Seymour moved the adoption of the following reso-
lution, seconded by Franklin Bunch.

RESOLUTION
RESOLVED that the Florida Association of Archi-
tects in "Annual Meeting Assembled" adopt the CON-
STITUTION AND BY-LAWS, as presented by the
Unification Committee, composed of Miss Marion Man-
ley, Chairman, and John L. Skinner, Archie G. Parish,
Russell Seymour, Arthur Beck, and Norman F. Six,
members representing the three Florida Chapters of
the American Institute of Architects and the Florida
Association of Architects.
AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the secre-
tary of the Florida Association of Architects is hereby
authorized and directed to submit this Constitution
and By-laws to the American Institute of Architects
for their approval and issuance of a State-wide Char-
ter, upon ratification of this Constitution and By-Laws
by a majority of the three existing A. I. A. Chapters
in the State of Florida.
AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that upon
receipt of the above named Charter, the existing
officers of the now existing Florida Association of
Architects, shall be authorized and directed to apply
for an amended State Charter, superceding the now
existing Florida Association of Architects, incorpor-
ated under the Laws of Florida, under date of 1914.
AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the of-
ficers of the existing Florida Association of Architects
shall continue to administer the affairs of the new
"Florida Association of Architects of the American
Institute of Architects," until their successors are duly
elected, in accordance with the new Charter and By-
laws at the next annual meeting of the Association.

A recorded vote on the resolution showed that all
members present voted in favor of the Constitution and
By-laws. The group then gave a rising vote of thanks
to the committee for its work.
After some discussion it was decided to increase the
annual dues to $10.00. One of the principal reasons was
that the State Board of Architecture did not receive
sufficient funds from the $5.00 renewal fee to properly
investigate all the cases of alleged illegal practice and
the members of the Association wished to set up a fund


that can be used to supplement the State Board funds
in this work. It was also felt that the Association should
have an adequate reserve for legislative purposes and
that they should build up a reserve to use for an educa-
tional program. There were other reasons for a more
adequate financing of the Association brought forth and


the melmb)ers present voted unanimously for the increase.
Several other items of routine convention work were
taken care of and officers and directors elected. The
Entertainment Committee from the Miami area did a
wonderful job in making the convention a complete success.

AMERICAN INSTITUTE NATIONAL CONVENTION
The American Institute of Architects will hold its
annual convention in Miami Beach May 8, 9, and 10, and
we do want a good rlepr,.esentatiion from Florida. F'lorid;i
and Florida architects should be proud of the factI that
this convention is to be held in our state.
In a telephone conversation with President Stripling,
he suggested that in view of the May meeting of the
Institute it might be wise to have our semi-annual As-
sociation meeting in April. This has not been definitely
determined as yet but notice will be given in the next
bulletin of the exact date.

UNIFICATION: . The proposed constitution for the
Florida Association of Architects of the American Insti-
tute of Architects as passed at the November Convention
was ratified by the Florida North Chapter of the Institute
at the January meeting. It is hoped that the Florida
Central Chapter and the Florida South Chapter will follow
suit so that the constitution might be sent to the Institute
for final approval and issuance of a charter.

DUES NOTICES: . Dues notices are enclosed with this
issue of the bulletin. It should be noted that dues for
1946 were raised at the November Convention to $10.00.
The following dues have been received to date:
James A. Stripling L. Murray Dixon
Frederick T. Hannaford Sanford W. Goin
Arthur E. Davis F. A. Gibbs
Walter C. DeGarmo A. Courtney Stewart
F. Earl Leggett Win. 0. Sparklin

NEW REGISTRANTS: .. Mr. Greeley has just furnished
us with a list of new architectural registrants. We wel-

NEWS AND COMMENTS: . At the last meeting of
the Florida North Chapter an old wheelhorse of the pro-
fession in Florida was again drafted for further service,
Mellen Greeley being elected President of the Chapter,
Bill Arnett, Vice-President, and Franklin Adams of Jack-
sonville, Secretary-Treasurer.
A letter from Frank Bunch with regard to Associa-
tion business indicates a new partnership in Jacksonville:
William D. Kemp, Franklin S. Bunch, William K. Jack-
son, and Ralph S. Mizrahi, partners; Prentiss Huddle-
ston and Frederick W. Bucky, Jr., associates.
Two district directors report luncheon meetings of
members of their district. Eugene Cellar, of Jacksonville,
advises that the architects in his district have been having
regular weekly meetings with an average attendance of
about nine or ten. They have round table discussions on
subjects of interest to the profession and building trades,
and occasionally there is a guest speaker. Francis Wal-
ton, of Daytona Beach, sent in a couple of newspaper
clippings and referred to one such luncheon meeting.
It is noted from one of the clippings Walton sent in
that "Former City Planner Arthur D. McVoy, creator
of the Master Plan for Daytona Beach," was in that city
"to make an intensive study of development problems."
McVoy will be remembered as a graduate of the Univer-
sity of Florida where he was connected with the staff
for a number of years before going into private practice.
The other clipping was from the club program section
of the Daytona paper and reported a talk by Miss Marion
Manley of Miami. We quote in part:
SIf the State Road Dept. decides to make that four-
lane run down Ridgewood Ave. at the expense of its
bcautilul trees, it will have the Palmetto club to
reckon with. That became obvious yesterday after-
noon when what started out as a talk on "Your Next
Home and Its Equipment" wound up as a discussion'
of city planning.
Miss Marion Manley of Miami, prominent Florida
architect, warned her listeners, "Don't ever let anyone
put four-lane highways through the main part of your
town."
As a member of the Miami City Planning Board,
Miss Manley said she knew the nuisance value of a
woman's club and had used it often in the past to win
a point. The women, she said, have but to unite to
become a power to recken with.
Miss Manley said that she had not seen our city
pllan but that she had heard of it while studying at
Massachusetts Institute of Technology and that she


knew the excellent reputation of Arthur McVoy who
drew the plan. She. urged that the Palmetto club give
it full support. City planning, she said, is all uphill
work unless the public is fully behind it. It took
,some time, she stated, for a City Plan to be completed
u.s progress was made bit byy bit and the plan must







be kept flexible for possible city changes. She said
that citizens-merchants especially--should take a
broad view of suggested changes. She cited the grow-
ing need of parking facilities in most of the towns of
today and said she expected that the day might come
when the whole first floors of department stores might
be given over to parking . In the beginning of
her talk, Miss Manley told of the progress being made
by architecture today. The indigenous architecture
of our country she said was a conglomerate mass
mostly lacking in imagination. She warned her listen-
ers that she was a modernist and she told of the
revolutionary steps made in building with the intro-
duction of structural steel. She said that sociological
as well as physical aspects should be considered when
designing a house. More attention should be paid to
the living requirements for the individual families.
She declared that 'teen-age youngsters have lives of
their own and should have a space to themselves for
home-entertaining. Their social lives were apt to bore
their elders and vice versa. Every house, she said,
should have a "silly room," for youngsters to be just
as silly as they please in.
The future, she said, promises many new things


for the home as all companies have been at work,
during these war years, improving the efficiency of
household items. There will be an astonishing num-
ber of new materials (the first of these is plastics)
and labor saving devices, she said.

PERSONAL: . It is hoped that the architects from
central, west and south Florida will not take too great
exception to the fact that most of the news and comments
in this issue come from' the north Florida section. There
is an easy remedy to this and we hope that in the next
bulletin ve will be able to furnish news sent in from
other parts of the state. This is your new secretary's
first bulletin and frankly it has been very difficult to dig
up anywhere near enough information to fill the pages
so capably filled in the past by De La Haye and Fred
Hannaford. I am doing my best, however, and will
sincerely appreciate any comments, criticisms and news
items which any of you will be so kind as to send in.
Let this suffice from the standpoint of the secretary,
but I wish to add as treasurer that I don't like to lose
the nickname which the boys in the office have for me,
"Get-the-money-Goin" so take due note of the dues
notices.
