- Edward Vason Jones
Edward Vason Jones (
August 3, 1909- 1980), a neoclassical architectand member of the Georgia School of Classicism, began his career in 1936 with the design and construction of the Gillionville Plantation near his hometown of Albany, Georgia. The project impressed Hal Hentzof the well-known Atlanta firm of Hentz, Reid, and Adlerso much that he hired Jones as draftsman and superintendent of construction, despite his lack of formal training in architecture.
In 1948, after a brief period spent designing
warships for the U.S. Navyin Savannah, Jones established his own practice in Albany, where he worked until his death in 1980 .
His works include the first renovations to the U.S. Department of State Diplomatic Reception Rooms from 1965 to 1980, renovations to the
White Houseduring the Nixon, Ford and Carter administrations, work at the MississippiGovernor's Mansion, and dozens of neoclassical residential projects. A summer 2007 refurbishment of the Green Room at the White House retained Vason Jones drapery and cornice design.
One of the reception rooms he designed at the State Department was named the "Edward Vason Jones Memorial Hall" in his honor.
