Splendid Growth: Architectural Drawings of the A. French Textile Building (Exhibit)

Permanent URI for this collection

The A. French Building was home to Textile Engineering at Georgia Tech until the completion of the Harrison Hightower Textile Engineering Building in 1949, a half century later. More than a century after its construction, the A. French Building still stands as a reminder of the trailblazing work done in textile education in the earliest years of Georgia Tech.

The building itself, named in honor of the chief donor, Aaron French, and designed by the Massachusetts architectural firm of Lockwood Greene, was considered a very modern cotton mill, embodying "the very latest ideas of mill construction."
