The correspondence files of the Western Association of Architects for 1887 contain a calling card from H. H. Hohenschild. The AIA's membership files contain correspondence about his resignation and disciplinary action for participating in an unauthorized competition. Many building competitions in this era were conducted in ways that were unfair, or exploitative to architects. The AIA had set out rules for properly conducted competitions, and if a competition had not been approved as adhering to those rules, it was a violation of the code of ethics for any AIA member to participate in that competition.
