Young, Jean Linden
Jean Alice Linden was born in Detroit, Michigan, on February 15, 1922. She became a registered architect of Washington state in 1955 and established her own private practice in 1976. Her designs were almost all private residences, apartment buildings, and small commercial structures in the Seattle area. The Jean Linden Young papers consist of materials created and collected by Young during her lifetime. They include notes written as an instructor at the University of Kentucky, newspaper articles about her and her husband's architectural projects and accomplishments, information about her tenure as Secretary General of the UIFA, personal and professional correspondence, certificates of accomplishment, photographs and sketches of buildings she designed or renovated, exhibit boards, and literature about architecture in the Seattle area.
