Firm History Sources

Historical note:
Contributed by the Alexander Architectural Archive, University of Texas Libraries, The University of Texas:
In 1922 Herbert Greene was appointed "university architect" for the University of Texas, a post he held for the next ten years. During this time, he designed 10 buildings including the Biology Building (1925), Garrison Hall (1926), and Littlefield Dormitory (1927). After Paul Cret became consulting architect in 1930, his firm was in charge of producing working drawings for an additional 7 buildings on campus. In order to undertake such a large commission, Greene found it necessary to add partners to his firm. Edwin LaRoche became a partner in 1927 and George Dahl was made a partner the following year.
