The Professional Correspondence series documents the career of Kamphoefner in private practice in Sioux City, Iowa, as professor at the University of Oklahoma, and as founding Dean of the School of Design at North Carolina State University. Kamphoefner's role in developing the School of Architecture at the University of Oklahoma is also well-documented. Further, his professional contacts nationwide are reflected in his correspondence during the formative years of the School of Design at North Carolina State College. The series also includes information regarding Kamphoefner's consulting work for various projects including city planning and acting as an expert witness in several lawsuits. There is a complete collection of letters of reference for Kamphoefner's appointment as Fellow in the American Institute of Architects as well as letters of reference he provided for other architects. The series also documents several architectural projects designed by Kamphoefner, including the award-winning Music Pavilion and Outdoor Theater at Grandview Park in Sioux City, Iowa (1934). Further, there is documentation on Kamphoefner's professional involvement with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA). There is also correspondence relating to his activities in retirement, including teaching and travel. Correspondence relating to Kamphoefner's own residences in Norman, Oklahoma and Raleigh, North Carolina can be found in the Personal Correspondence series. The Professional Correspondence series is generally arranged first by subject and then chronologically.

This series chiefly includes architectural drawings done by Kamphoefner throughout his career. It also includes several study drawings done by Kamphoefner as a student between 1927 and 1932. All of Kamphoefner's built projects are represented as well as several competition entries and proposed projects. There are several oversized photographs as well. There is also one folder of diplomas, awards, and certificates earned by Kamphoefner. A series of scrapbooks that were kept by Mabel Kamphoefner is found at the end of the series. The scrapbooks document Henry Kamphoefner's achievements throughout his career with special emphasis on the success of the School of Design at North Carolina State University. The series is arranged first by general size of the material, then by subject. Accordingly, several subjects are spread among folders.

Scope and Content Note

The Henry Leveke Kamphoefner Papers documents the personal and professional life of Henry Kamphoefner. Included are materials relating to Kamphoefner's private architectural practice in Sioux City, Iowa; his tenure as professor at the School of Architecture at the University of Oklahoma; his tenure as Dean of the School of Design at North Carolina State University; and his activities after retirement at NCSU, at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and at Meredith College in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Professional Correspondence series is especially rich in documentation of all facets of his career, as Kamphoefner kept meticulous copies of his own letters as well as those received. Architectural drawings in the Oversized Materials series document his student work at the University of Illinois and at Columbia University, at his private practice in Iowa and on several other projects including his own residences in Norman, Oklahoma and Raleigh, North Carolina.

Biographical Note

Henry Leveke Kamphoefner, the son of a Methodist preacher, was born in Des Moines, Iowa in 1907. He attended Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa from 1924 to 1926 and graduated in 1930 from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor of Science degree in architecture. In 1931, he received a Master of Science degree in architecture from Columbia University, and in 1932, he received a Certificate in Architecture from the Beaux Arts Institute of Design in New York.

Kamphoefner returned to Sioux City in 1932 and privately practiced architecture there through 1936. From 1936 through 1937, he worked as an associate architect for the Rural Resettlement Administration in Washington, D.C. Kamphoefner then took a position as professor of architecture at the University of Oklahoma, where he remained through 1948. During his tenure there, he also worked as an architect for the United States Navy during the summers of 1938, 1939, and 1941. Kamphoefner was also a visiting professor at the University of Michigan during the summer of 1947. In 1948, Kamphoefner became the first dean of the North Carolina State College (later North Carolina State University) School of Design. He remained as dean until 1973, when he retired and was named dean emeritus. He continued teaching until 1979, when the mandatory retirement age of 72 was invoked by the university and Kamphoefner was required to leave. Following his retirement from North Carolina State, Kamphoefner became Distinguished Visiting Professor at Meredith College in Raleigh, where he remained from 1979-1981.

Kamphoefner's professional activities included acting as president of the Raleigh Council of Architects (1955-1956); as a member of the Board of Directors (1965), treasurer (1959-1963), director (1959-1967), and president (1963-1965) of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA); as a member of the Design Panel of Architects to the United States Navy (1964); and as National Endowment for the Humanities Humanist in Residence in Fayetteville, North Carolina (Fall 1977). Kamphoefner received several awards and honors for his professional work, including an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from Morningside College (1967); an honorary Doctorate of Laws from Ball State University (1972); an award in Joint Achievement for Lasting Achievement in Architectural Education (1977); and a North Carolina Award for Achievement in the Fine Arts (1978). His 1934 building, the Grandview Music Pavilion in Sioux City, Iowa, was selected by the Royal Institute of British Architects as one of "America's Outstanding Buildings of the Post-War Period."

Kamphoefner married Mabel C. Franchere on January 5, 1937. He died in Raleigh on February 14, 1990.
