Having grown up with Gene Leedy, I never thought of him or his friends as "famous" architects. I was going through some recipes today of my mother's and found a recipe that Mark Hampton gave to my mother, affectionately know as "Margie Mouse."
Mark Hampton, along with my Dad - Gene Leedy and other midcentury modern architects were part of the Sarasota School of Architecture.
