Architect Honored

"H.K. Black, Regina architect, will be honored with a fellowship of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, it was announced Thursday.

The award, which will be made May 11 at a meeting of the Institute in Montreal is restricted to 8 per cent of the membership.

Mr. Black was born in Regina and attended public school here and graduated from Central Collegiate. In 1935 he obtained his architect's qualifications from the University of Toronto. During the Second World War he served in the Canadian navy and on demobilization set up a business in the city.

He is architect for the $500,000 United Church to be built in the Lakeview district and has recently completed Imperial and Wascana public schools, two of the most modern elementary schools in western Canada. Mr. Black is a member of the Engineering Institute of Canada and is president of the Saskatchewan Association of Architects."

At the time, HKB was the youngest architect (age 42) ever to have received a fellowship from the RAIC.
