Biographical Note

Herbert Fowler, the son of Herbert Eugene Fowler and Mary Keatinge Fowler, was born May 31, 1921, in Lewiston, Idaho, He attended Yale University completed bachelor of arts and bachelor of architecture degrees at Yale, though his education was interrupted by a stint serving in the Army in the Pacific theater during World War II. Fowler subsequently worked at architectural firms in New Haven, Conn., and New York City. Soon after marrying Marie Ellen “Judy” Booth in 1952 the couple moved to Fayetteville where Herb designed the much needed Animal Sciences Building and soon joined the faculty of the Architecture Department. Herb continue to teach in design and architecture history for over three decades, helping to shape what became the School of Architecture. An early career highlights was a Fulbright scholarship which supported a year of study in Oslo, Norway. Herb officially retired in 1989 and was honored with Professor Emeritus status. The popularity of advanced class Design Determinants he had developed drew him back to the classroom somewhat longer. Perhaps unlikely Arkansans, the Fowlers embraced life in Fayetteville and made roots. Fowler became engaged outside of academia, as well. He was involved with professional organizations, community groups and professional practice. Fowler designed primarily residential projects including his own home. Ian and Alison Fowler, his surviving children, were raised in the one of these distinctive houses. Deepwood, as it was named, was anchored to the side of Mt. Kessler overlooking the University and the City of Fayetteville below. Herb died April 10, 2008 of lung cancer.
