The subject of this Blog is the William James Carpenter, AIA who was born in London England in 1864, emigrated to the United States c1878, and practiced architecture in several different cities across the United States.  Most often referred to as Wm. J. Carpenter, he died in 1953 in Palatka, Florida.

 If you are interested in the William Joseph Carpenter PhD FAIA who is an eminent author and contemporary architect headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, you will find him at

 Unfortunately, our subject’s promising career was cut short by the Great Depression of the 1930s and little has been recorded of his accomplishments.  In order to save this important part of American and family history this blog is dedicated to his life works.

If you are the owner of one of Wm. J. Carpenter’s buildings or paintings, or have other interests in his career please join us here and keep in touch.  The Odyssey will continue, and who knows where it will lead.  Each newly discovered building adds another jewel to the treasure chest.

  There is still a lot of research and writing to do.  I am going to try to add new dialogue information on Wm. J. Carpenter on a weekly schedule, so please bookmark this blog and check it regularly.  I probably won’t be able to respond to comments immediately, but will try to keep up to date with them every few days.
