Aitken, Graf & Hazen, Architects
Martin Aitken, Lincoln, Nebraska
Burket Graf, Lincoln, Nebraska
Nathan Bruce Hazen, Lincoln, Nebraska
In 1970, Martin Aitken, Burket Graf, Bruce Hazen, and Woody Hull formed a Lincoln architectural consortium to share offices and personnel throughout their waning years of practice. Aitken, who had been building since the 1930s, was going to retire until Hoffman talked him into joining him. Hazen had worked previously with Hoffman on previous Kentucky Fried Chicken projects. The members and title of this consortium changed multiple times over the next two decades. After 1997, Bill Hoffman continued to practice individually while maintaining an office and secretary under the name Aitken, Hazen, Hoffman & Miller until 2003.
