Description

Franklin Rutherford, whose father managed the Missoula power plant, lived with the Missoula architect, A. J. Gibson and his family, for four years after his mother died. Rutherford recounts Gibson’s various activities, such as his investments, cars, travels and the boarders in the Gibson house. Rutherford also offers a broad outline of Gibson’s professional development as a carpenter in Butte, then as a cabinetmaker in Missoula, and finally as an architect. He briefly mentions a few of the buildings Gibson built in Montana, and describes Missoula during the 1920s and 1930s.
