Program Timeline

  1. 1. Draft Timeline of the CRP Program - with focus to CRP Community-based Efforts Compiled by Mark Tirpak, MSCRP Candidate, in March 2006, based on information about the Program gained from web searches and correspondence and conversations with current and past CRP faculty members. It should not be considered the definitive history of the CRP program. Please feel free to add to, edit, or otherwise amend this document! Year Semester Professor(s) Description Course Community Geographic Partner(s) Area 1910 The School of Architecture (SOA) is established within UT's Engineering Dept. http://www.ar.utexas.edu/History/ http://www.lib.utexas.edu/taro/utaaa/00081/aaa-00081.html 1920 The SOA becomes the "Department of Architecture" within the College of Engineering. 1925 The Department is granted membership in the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture. 1927 The Department moves from the Engineering Building to B Hall (no longer exists – destroyed by fire), because of its growth. 1928 The Association of Student Architects is established - the group hosts an annual "Wind-Up Ball," a major year-end event (through at least the 1950's). Ptah, the ancient Egyptian architect of the Nile, serves as the Department's mascot / "patron saint." A student dressed as Ptah would address the Ball each year - and a wooden sculpture of Ptah is created (this statue is available in the Alexander Archives) 1929 Student Enrollment in the Architecture Program is approx 115. 1930 $300,000 is budgeted by UT for a new Architecture Building - Goldsmith Hall 1930 Student enrollment in the Architecture Program is 200. 1930-33 Paul Phillip Crete develops a master plan for the UT campus, including plans for Goldsmith Hall. 1935 The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards accredits UT’s Architecture Program. 1939 Hugo Leipziger-Pearce is invited from New York to develop a curriculum/program in City and Regional Planning (possible funding from the Rockefellers?). He directs the CRP program for the next 19 years. He remains employed at UT until 1974 (note: a biography of Leipziger-Pearce is available in the Architecture Library). http://www.utexas.edu/faculty/council/2000-2001/memorials/AMR/Leipziger/leipziger. html 1940 The National Architecture Accrediting Board accredits UT’s Architecture Department. 1948 Student enrollment in the Architecture Program (including CRP) is approx. 600. http://www.utexas.edu/student/registrar/catalogs/ug06-08/ch02/ch02a.html 1951 The Department is granted full autonomy as a separate School of Architecture (SOA). 1957- The "baby boom" generation goes to college. The UT campus grows from 20,000 early students to 40,000. The focus of study at UT shifts from liberal arts to professional 70's programs & research. During this same time period, the Student Architects' Wives Association (SAWA) conducts events, such as the graduation banquet. There is also an active Women's Architectural League during this same time period. 1959 The Master of Science in Community and Regional Planning Program (MSCRP) is formally approved.

Early CRP is a 4-year, 60 hour interdisciplinary program of approx. 9 -15 students. CRP 1960's students complete studio courses with Architecture students (Arch. students meet more often and earn more credit - 6 vs.3 credit hrs per combined course). CRP students attend lectures of "the best professors in the other disciplines" - specifically, engineering and sociology. CRP students work with sociology faculty members to learn survey methods, and are engaged in community surveying. English professors serve as guest lecturers to teach principles of technical writing. In addition, students are taken to visit professional offices and are engaged in professional work. A professional office is maintained in the basement of one of the architecture buildings for professors to engage in private practice (and to employ Arch. and CRP students in professional tasks) – according to Prof. Peter Coltman, retired. Late-19 Ian McHarg (of “Design with Nature” fame) develops the Lake Austin Growth 60's / Management Plan for Austin, based on his "design with nature" concepts. He guest early lectures within the UTSOA . 1970's Fall Dean of the School of Architecture Alan Taniguchi joins students and community 1969 members in protesting the destruction of pecan and elm trees on Waller Creek to expand UT's football stadium (trees were removed to make way for construction equipment – not for the actual stadium expansion). Students are literally pulled from trees under Chairmen of the Board of Regents Frank Erwin orders. Students carry the felled trees to the center of West Campus in a funeral procession. Later, Taniguchi is forced to resign under pressure from Erwin - Taniguchi leaves the School in 1972. The School of Architecture faces budget cuts and other reprisals. http://www.utexas.edu/tours/nowthen/60/17_Tree_protest_1969.html http://www.tsp.utexas.edu/centennial/80093000_s34_Trees.html 1970 The SOA Advisory Council is formed. 1971 New perimeter walls are built along Guadalupe St. from 24th to 21st St. and along 21st St - to "facilitate traffic flow," and/or "prevent soil erosion," but there is a sense that the walls have been placed to curb student and non-student interaction on campus – and in response to growing protests on campus nationwide (the west campus was formally much more open to the public - similar to Harvard's campus) 1970's The core CRP curriculum sequence is established 1974 SOA Dean's Council is formed. Late CRP enrollment is approx. 45 entering students each year. 1970's 1979 Butler Area-Wide Environmental Impact Statement 1980 Fall & Prof. Patricia Community CRP-LBJ East Town East Spring Wilson & Economic Year-long Lake Austin, (1981) Prof. Robert Development Policy Citizens’ TX Wilson with East Research Association Austin Chicano Project (ETLCA) - Development East Austin Corporation Chicano NOTE: Grey indicates an important event or trend in the CRP Program’s History 2

Development Corporation Late SOA professors reject a UT directive to desist course-based work in East Austin - 1980's specifically in the Blackland area, as the University fights to annex land in this neighborhood. http://journalism.utexas.edu/eastaustin/developmentf.html 1992 The CRP is downgraded from '“department” status to "program?" Some faculty feel that this is an attempt to dissolve the CRP program, entirely - and there is talk of transferring the program to the LBJ School (this needs to be verified – some dispute about this. From interviews with current faculty members, it is clear that some form of major tension existed between the planning program and other programs / factions within the SOA) 1995 The first volume of CRP's Planning Forum is published - a "nontraditional, cross- disciplinary forum" for "students, faculty members, and field practitioners." http://www.ar.utexas.edu/planning/forum/ (this needs to be verified – the Planning Forum might pre-date 1995 – there were other student publications as well – Nexus, and the Working Paper Series - http://www.ar.utexas.edu/Planning/students/opportunity.html#Publications ) 1995 The Urban Issues Program (UIP) is launched by Robert Wilson of the LBJ School to serve as a "clearinghouse for information about courses, research, community outreach, and related events at UT." http://www.utexas.edu/academic/uip/ 1996 Spring Paterson Growth CRP 390: Management Growth Seminar w/ Manage Downtown ment Austin Alliance Butler Springdale Park Springdale Concept Plan Park Steering Committee (see document for committee members) 1997 Fall Handy Work with the CRP 384: PODER Gardens, Gardens Neighbor Neighborh Neighborhood hood ood, Transport Austin, ation TX NOTE: Grey indicates an important event or trend in the CRP Program’s History 3
