Biographical / Historical
Stanhope S. Johnson was born in Lynchburg, Virginia, in 1881, and began work in architecture at the age of seventeen in the office of Edward G. Frye, and later became a partner in the architectural firm of McLaughlin, Pettit and Johnson. From 1925 to 1932, Johnson associated with architect Ray O. Brannan as Johnson and Brannan, along with draftsman and designer Addison Staples.
Johnson designed at least two notable buildings in North Carolina, the Washington Duke Hotel in Durham and the Carolina Theatre and Hotel in Winston-Salem, as well as other buildings in Virginia.
Upon his death in 1975, many of Johnson’s drawings were donated to the Jones Memorial Library in Lynchburg which forms the majority of the Lynchburg Architectural Archive.
