Come join us for an evening of talk story with architect
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.
