Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Terry Tong Collection spans the dates circa 1943 to 1994 and contains materials that document his academic and architectural career. The Collection is organized into three series: Personal Papers comprised of biographical information and Tong's architecture course work while at UCB; Professional Papers containing a clipping and firm portfolio; and the final series Project Records consisting of drawings, correspondence, photographs, reports, clippings and ephemera which document 39 projects Tong designed while working for Campbell & Wong and during the time he operated his private practice.
Terry Tong was born in San Francisco on December 8, 1921. He attended the University of California at Berkeley (UCB) where he studied Architecture. Tong's studies were interrupted by World War II during which he served as part of the United States National Guard in Algeria, Italy, and France. Wounded in battle, he was able to return to the United States and resume his studies at UCB in 1946, graduating with his degree in 1949. During summer vacations while in Architecture school, Tong worked for various Bay Area firms seeking practical experience, including Campbell & Wong and Phillip Tomesello.
