Tony Crane will present a detailed history of one of the early architectural firms established in Quincy, IL that is still in operation today beginning with the firm of George P. Behrensmeyer, Architect, and tracing through the many partnerships and individuals involved with the firm over time, up to and including the present day. Historical profiles of principal partners of the firm over the years will be addressed as well as prominent local and area projects that were designed by those individuals. Additionally a brief explanation will be given for the process of how to become licensed to practice architecture in the State of Illinois and how laws have progressed and changed over the years. Examples of original architectural drawings, photographs, and exhibits will be presented.
