Biographical/Historical note

Architect Kenneth W. Brooks was born in Cedarvale, Kansas in 1917. He received his undergraduate degree in Architectural Engineering in 1941 and a master's degree in Architecture in 1948, both from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He served in the Caribbean with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (1941-1943) and the U.S. Marine Corps (1944-1946).

In 1948 Brooks traveled to Europe on a University of Illinois Francis Plym Fellowship, spending most of his seven-month trip in Sweden working with Sven Markelius, a Swedish city planner and architect.

He moved to Spokane in 1948 and established his architectural practice there in 1951 (Kenneth Brooks, Architect; later Brooks, Hensley, Creager). He became an award-winning urban designer and city planner; one of his most ambitious and noteworthy projects was "A Place in the Sun," an urban design plan for downtown Spokane. He participated very actively in the planning process for Expo '74, the World's Fair held in Spokane in 1974. He designed several major commercial buildings, including the headquarters for Washington Water Power in Spokane, the Rogers-Orton Dining Hall at Washington State University, the Intermountain Gas Company Central Service Facility in Boise, and the art-music-drama complex at Columbia Basin Community College in Pasco, Washington.

Brooks was very active in his profession, frequently presenting papers to local, regional, and national groups on topics in architecture, urban design, transportation planning, and environmental policy.

Arrangement note

This collection is arranged in 9 series. The original order of the papers has been altered to draw together related materials. Series 1 through 4 represent Brooks' architectural practice, professional involvement, periods of architectural study, and his journals, sketchbooks, and presentations. Series 5 and 6 include materials of very specific types: printed material (many items with Brooks' annotations) and photography. The final series, 7 through 9, consist large items such as drawings, maps, and mounted photographs.

Series 1: Architectural firm (Kenneth Brooks, Architect, and Brooks, Hensley, Creager), 1949-1992 (Boxes 1-7). Correspondence, memoranda, reports, and publications related to land-use planning, zoning and urban design issues. Includes documentation of projects contracted to Kenneth Brooks, Architect, and Brooks, Hensley, Creager.

Series 2: American Institute of Architects (AIA) and other professional societies, 1948-1990 (Boxes 7-8). Correspondence, reports, conference materials, and selected printed matter.

Series 3: European study tours, Francis Plym Fellowship, and general European architecture, 1941-1980 (chiefly 1975-1980) (Boxes 8-12). Records of Brooks' fellowship in Stockholm in 1948-1949, including correspondence, information files, and reports related to land use and building design in Sweden. Some items in Swedish. Similar material for study tour 1978-1979, and printed matter, reports, and photographs of architectural interest from Europe, with a sequence concerning sites of classical antiquity.

Series 4: Journals, Sketchbooks, Presentations, 1936-1991 (Boxes 12-14). Includes spiral-bound notebooks with comments, sketches, drawings, and notes about general observations, projects, presentations, trips, and plans. Also drafts or synopses of presentations or papers given at conferences of professional societies, and architectural and planning presentations.

Series 5: Printed and published material, circa 1950-1990 (Boxes 15-16). Copies, reprints, clippings and tear sheets from professional, technical, and popular periodicals, concerned with topics such as urban affairs, urban planning and design, building and architectural design, as well as other topics of interest to Brooks.

Series 6: Photography, exact dates uncertain (many 1975-1980) (Boxes 17-24). Mostly 35mm projection slides, some grouped together for presentations. Also some commercial retail photographs, including picture postcards. Many have limited or no identification. Most photographs are of architectural examples, primarily in Europe. Some relate to Brooks' architectural projects, such as the Coulee Dam project.

Series 7: Small Oversize materials (Boxes 25-26).

Series 8: Oversize materials (1), circa 1955-1992. Large-scale drawings, prints, photographs, reports, and maps, related mainly to Brooks' projects.

Series 9: Oversize materials (2), circa 1955-1990. Larger sized items, similar to Oversize (1).
