AKA: John F. Hyde, Jr., Architect

Born October 13, 1911 to John Fay Hyde (1885-1950) and Mabel Elvina Nichols Hyde (1888-1954), ‘’’John F. Hyde, Jr.’’’ was a member of the American Institute of Architects from 1954-1974, but never supplied biographical or professional information to the organization for publication in any of their directories.[3] His resume thus far, therefore, is derived almost exclusively from directory listings and building permits. Hyde married Anna Jane Beaton on June 25, 1935 and became a registered architect in Nebraska in 1939. Hyde died in Omaha on September 13, 1980.[4]
