Pound and Flowers Architects, Drawings (MC 80)

Organizational Note

The donor, Mr. Murphey Pound (1925-2012), supplied the following information in 1991.  The firm of Pound & Flowers was formed in 1952, and became Pound, Flowers & Dedwylder in 1953.  The three principals were Murphey Pound (BS 1949, Georgia Tech, Bachelor of Architecture 1949, Georgia Tech), Joseph E. Flowers, Jr. (BS 1944, Georgia Tech, Bachelor of Architecture 1947, Georgia Tech) and Rozier T. Dedwylder (BS, 1948 Georgia Tech, Bachelor of Architecture, 1948 Georgia Tech).  The firm had a brief name change to Pound, Flowers, Dedwylder, Payne & McGinnis in the early 1970s which lasted about 2 years.  The new partners were Charles L. Payne and Allen R. McGinnis, both of whom received their Bachelors of Architecture degrees from Auburn University.  The firm practiced under the name of Pound Flowers & Dedwylder until Rozier Dedwylder left the firm in 1980, at which time it reverted to its original name of Pound & Flowers Architects.  It continued to operate under than name until Joseph E. Flowers Jr. retired in 1990.  Murphey Pound continued to practice architecture as Murphey Pound, Architect.
