Town, Albert Hays (b.1903 - d.2005)
Architect, Jackson, MS/Baton Rouge, LA
Born in Crowley, LA, attended Southwestern Louisiana Institute and Tulane University, graduating from the latter in 1926. He moved to Jackonto work in the firm of N.W. OVERSTREET, and eventually joined in partnership with him as N.W. OVERSTREET & A.H. TOWN, 1931-1939. During the Depression, he also worked as the leader of a HABS team, recording antebellum houses in MS. He moved back to Louisiana to practice independently in 1939, and by the 1960s had become known for his residential designs which featured a return to traditional building forms and the use of salvaged materials. Office listed in 1956 at the Triad Building in Baton Rouge, and in 1962 at 875 Commerce Blvd., Baton Rouge, LA. See Kingsley, Buildings of Louisiana, pp. 190, 209, 252, 258, 274, 287, 324, 444-445. See American Architects Directory, 1956.
