The staff at the Design Library have been working diligently behind the scenes to digitize all of the 35mm slides donated by the founding dean of the College of Design, Henry L. Kamphoefner. The slides he donated are a combination of his original photography and those given to him by professional contacts.
There are still many more slides to digitize, but please take this opportunity to see works of architecture and landscape architecture ranging from ancient to 20th Century. See modernist masterpieces like Paul Rudolph’s Cocoon House or James Fitzgibbon’s Daniel House . View examples of North Carolina Architecture, like Clemmer & Horton’s Catawba Dairy Bar or J. Frank Fitzgibbons’s George Paschal House . All of the images that have been digitized so far are viewable here .
This project was begun in anticipation of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the College of Design in 2018. Check back with the Design Library for future developments on this fascinating project.
