Biographical Note

John G. Williams (1915–2008) was an architect, landscape architect, and the founding faculty member of the Department of Architecture at the University of Arkansas. John G. Williams was born April 30, 1915 in Van Buren, Arkansas to Vera Jane Wallace Williams and Charles Bunyan Williams. Williams earned his bachelor’s degree in architecture from Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College after studying engineering at Arkansas Polytechnic College. After graduation he returned to teach both math and drawing at Arkansas Polytechnic College. While in Russellville, he met Faye Millard, and they married in 1941. They had one daughter, Diana Sue. After teaching for 4 years in Oklahoma, Williams began his long association with the University of Arkansas in 1946. Hired as a professor, Williams served as chairman of the Department of Architecture for the next twenty years and continued to teach until his retirement in 1985. His contributions extended far beyond the classroom and included initiating the steps required for the Department of Architecture to earn its full accreditation in 1960. Much of Williams' history in the School of Architecture is chronicled in his 1984 book, The Curious and the Beautiful. On April 11, 2008 Williams died from a bone marrow disease. He is buried at Van Buren Fairview Cemetery.
