Hunt, R.H. & Co. (b.1862 - d.1937)
Architecture Firm, Chattanooga, TN/Dallas, TX/Jackson, MS
Reuben Harrison Hunt was born in Elbert Co., GA, and moved to Chattanooga at the age of 20 to enter the building trade, studying architecture at night and working by day with Adams Bros, architects, contractors and builders. By 1886, he was operating with the firm HUNT, MCDANIEL, Architects, Contractors and Builders, and from 1890-1892, he was practicing as HUNT & LAMM. In 1900, he formed his own firm, R.H. Hunt & Co., under which he would practice for the rest of his career. Headquarters was in Chattanooga, with secondary offices in Jackson and Dallas. N.W. OVERSTREET worked a summer in the office of R.H. Hunt, when Hunt had several active projects underway at Mississippi A&M, where Overstreet was a student at the time. Active in the Southern Baptist Convention. Advertised offices at 8th and Broad Streets, Chattanooga, and at 501 Seutter Building, Jackson, MS, in the Jackson Daily Clarion-Ledger, March 8, 1905. Son, B.F. Hunt, carried on the firm's practice after R.H. Hunt's retirement in 1933, and later practiced independently. See NR nomination for Montgomery Hall, MSU; Herndon, Architects in Tennessee, p. 100; Withey, Biographical Dictionary of American Architects (Deceased); and letter from Martin A. Davis, dated March 2, 1982.
