Biographical Information

Gordon Wittenberg was born in 1922 to George and Minnie Greenfield Wittenberg. His father was one of the founders in 1919 of the Wittenberg & Deloney architectural firm. The firm later became Wittenberg, Deloney and Davidson, and is now known as WD&D. Gordon took over the presidency of the firm following the retirement of his father and served in that position for 30 years. His research into the history of architecture in Arkansas led him to collaborate with fellow architect Charles Witsell in writing Architects of Little Rock: 1833-1950, edited by Dr. Marylyn Jackson Parins and published in 2014 by the University of Arkansas Press.
