Florida Governor Haydon Burns accepting an award with Louis Ritter.
A citation of excellence in community architecture was awarded to the City of Jacksonville by the American Institute of Architects at a recent Clearwater, Florida dinner, and is here shown being accepted by principals involved, including Florida's Governor Haydon Burns (center). Accepting the award along with Governor Burns, a former Jacksonville mayor, is the current mayor-commissioner of the upper east coast city, Louis H. Ritter (right). Making the presentation is Robert H. Levison, a Clearwater architect and Florida's regional director of the American Institute of Architects. The award resulted from Jacksonville's community effort in redevelopment of the city's waterfront area, as part of the national beautification program. The citation was given at a Craftsman-of-the-Year dinner in connection with the Florida Association of Architects convention in Clearwater. Governor Burns was keynote speaker at the dinner.
Western Association of Architects, established in 1884, merged with American Institute of Architects in 1889.
