Artisan Profile


Malvaney, Edgar Lucian (b.1896 - d.1970)
Architect, Jackson, MS
Born in Jackson, MS, and studied at MSU for one year (1917), before seeing service in the U.S. Army (American Expeditionary Force) in France during WWI. He remained in France after the war, studying architecture for six months at the A.E.F. School of Architecture in Le Mans and Paris, but returned to Jackson by 1919, when he worked for a number of local firms for the next decade: Drafting and Superintending for H.N. AUSTIN (1919-20); Draftsman for E.J. HULL (his cousin--1920-21); Drafting and Superintendant for T.C. LINK (1921-23); and Head Draftsman for C.H. LINDSLEY (1923-26). During this time, he also received his diploma from Washington University in St. Louis for "Special Arch." in 1922. In 1926, he became a partner in the firm HULL & MALVANEY, with EMMETT HULL. Leaving this partnership in 1931, he practiced independently for many years, designing a number of buildings and planning and supervising the moving of the town of Coldwater, Mississippi to a new site to make way for the Arkabutla Lake project in the 1930s. He served as president of the MS AIA in 1944. ROBERT GRANT FOSTER worked in this firm from 1938-1942. R.C. JONES was Architect-Designer in his office 1935-1941, and B.A. ENGLAND worked as Draftsman and Designer, 1945-1946. BEVERLY MARTIN was a draftsman and architect, dates unknown. Married in 1922, he had two sons, EDGAR LOUIS (known as Louis) and EMMETT BURKETT. Both sons became associated with his firm in 1954, when it became known as E.L. MALVANEY & ASSOCIATES. Some of his records are contained in two collections at MSU in Starkville: Hull and Malvaney Architectural Records and Malvaney Architectural Records, both held in Special Collections at Mitchell Memorial Library.
