A graduate of the Univer-
sity of Michigan's school of
architecture, King worked
for smaller architectural
and engineering offices
prior to joining the Kahn or-
ganization in 1935. He was
hired personally by Albert
Kahn, the founder, and was
appointed a project archi-
tect in 1938.
King, a member of the
University of Michigan
President's Club, was the
initiator of the Raoul Wal-
lenberg Architectural Lec-
ture Series at the U. of M. in
tribute to the great Swedish
war hero and rescuer of
many thousands of Jews
who was his classmate at
the College of Architecture.
In 1949 King was admit-
ted to partnership in the
organization and in 1955 he
was elected to the Kahn
board of directors and made
a vice president of the firm.
One year later he was ap-
pointed director of architec-
ture "in recognition of his
role in the creation of a
number of award-winning
facilities for which he was
the architect-in-charge."
These included an honor
award from the St. Louis
Chapter of the American In-
stitute of Architects for the
design of the Ford-St. Louis
plant.

In 1958 he was elected
president, the post he held
until 1974 when he became
chairman of the board.
Under his leadership, the
firm received 25 awards
including the firm of the
year award (1971) from the
American Institute of Ar-
chitects.

In 1966 King was elected
to fellowship in the Ameri-
can Institute of Architects.
The following year he re-
ceived a Sesquicentennial
Award from the University
of Michigan, and the Michi-
gan Society of Architects
honored him with its gold
medal award for "out-
standing accomplishment."
Late in 1970 he was made
a member of the Newcomen
Society in North American
just prior to the group's
meeting in Detroit to honor
him and the firm on the oc-
casion of the Kahn firm's
75th anniversary. The first
architect ever to serve as
president of the Engineer-
inf.Y., Society of Detroit, in
1974 he was elected to fel-
lowship in ESD.
