MC 00198 Henry Leveke Kamphoefner Papers, 1924 - 1990
The Henry Leveke Kamphoefner Papers documents the personal and professional life of Henry Kamphoefner. Included are materials relating to Kamphoefner's private architectural practice in Sioux City, Iowa; his tenure as professor at the School of Architecture at the University of Oklahoma; his tenure as Dean of the School of Design at North Carolina State University; and his activities after retirement at NCSU, at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and at Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Professional Correspondence series is especially rich in documentation of all facets of his career, as Kamphoefner kept meticulous copies of his own letters as well as those received. Architectural drawings in the Oversized Materials series document his student work at the University of Illinois and at Columbia University, at his private practice in Iowa and on several other projects including his own residences in Norman, Oklahoma, and Raleigh, North Carolina.
