Henry Menzies

Henry Hardinge Menzies of New Rochelle, NY, was born in Hickory, NC. He worked for several film production companies in New York City and in 1951 enlisted as a sailor in the Navy during the Korean War, rising to the rank of Lieutenant. Shortly before leaving the Navy, Henry was received into the Catholic Church. After the war, he obtained a degree in Architecture from the School of Design at North Carolina State University and in 1962 founded The Architects Group. His architectural work concentrated on design and renovation of churches and chapels. Henry was an avid painter, and drew others into his love of art through his enthusiasm. This book was written affectionately, as he understood true friendship, had a wide circle of friends, and shared his joy-filled and generous spirit with all of them.
