Biographical Note

Vernon F. Shogren was born on April 26, 1924 in Cloquet, Minnesota. In 1950 he received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Minnesota. He graduated with a Master of Architecture from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1952. As a Fulbright Scholar during 1952-1953, he received a certificate from the Technische Hogeschole, Delft, Netherlands. Afterwards Shogren returned to the United States and began teaching at the North Carolina State College School of Design. In 1955 he left North Carolina State College but returned shortly, teaching from 1961 until his 1992 retirement. He distinguished himself in the classroom as a challenging teacher who focused on conceptual issues. In 1964-1965 and 1969-1970, Shogren was named to the Academy of Outstanding Teachers, and from 1972-1975, he held a Distinguished Alumni Professorship at North Carolina State. Shogren's practical experience included a number of years with Eero Saarinen and Associates and such projects as the London and Oslo embassies and the University of Chicago Law School. Professor Emeritus Shogren died on December 6, 1995.
