Come join us for an evening of talk story with architect Frank Haines!
Upon his arrival to Hawaii in 1948, Mr. Haines began working at the architectural firm of Lemmon & Freeth. Five years later, he made partner and the firm became known as Lemmon, Freeth & Haines. In the early 1960s, Paul Jones joined the company. Joe Farrell also later became associated with the firm. The company ultimately expanded in 1976, becoming Architects Hawaii; for a number of years, it was the largest architectural firm in the State. Upon Cyril Lemmon's retirement in 1969, Frank Haines became president of the firm for the next 17 years.
Mr. Haines was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He received a BA from Princeton University and a Master of Architecture from M.I.T. On Tuesday, Mr. Haines will talk about his youth and how he became interested in architecture, as well as his years at Princeton and M.I.T. and his decision to move to Hawaii. His initial impressions of Honolulu and the architectural scene in the islands during the post-war period will also be addressed.
Complimentary light refreshments and pupus will be served.
We hope you will join us!
