Office Fun in 1954

Office Fun in 1954

Mr. Dow created and nurtured a fun and playful work environment in his architectural studio throughout its history. We have a couple of slides of the staff awarding a diploma to Harry L Cummings in 1954, that bestows upon him the title of F.A.B.D. (ARCHITECTUS BEAUX DOCTORUS). Note the good-humored listing of job responsibilities and the fun titles of the staff members. Eldine Crampton had the fun job of presenting the diploma to Harry.
