Downtown Hattiesburg, MS -- Cityscapes May 2009

Rated 4.00/5 based on 2 reviews
What follows is a collection of photos from my early morning walks around downtown Hattiesburg in May 2009. The downtown emerged in the late 19th century, before automobiles and electricity. As it turned into the 20th century, the town's first "skyscrapers" emerged, shaping the contour of the city, which are visible from all locations in my walk. More

About Harry Calvin Ward

About the Author

Harry Calvin Ward was born 27 May 1943 in Bay St. Louis, MS. He grew up in Bay St. Louis and New Orleans. He received his B.A. Degree at the University of Southern Mississippi and his M.A. Degree from East Tennessee State University.
Mr. Ward taught art at the University of Southern Mississippi from 1967 to 2005, retiring as Professor Emeritus of Art. He twice received the Excellence in Teaching Award from the University of Southern Mississippi, where he taught as part of the studio faculty and was past Chairman of the Department of Art.

As an artist, Mr. Ward’s exhibition record included regional, national and international exhibitions and his awards included: The Southern Contemporary Exhibition Award, Johnson City, TN; The Richard Crosby Award in the 20th Annual Juried Exhibition, Covington, LA; The Award of Merit for best single entry in The Mississippi Competitive Exhibition, Jackson, MS.

Richmond Barthé, noted American sculptor and native of Bay St. Louis, MS was part of Mr. Ward’s focus as an art educator. He established the Richmond Barthé Collection in the University of Southern Mississippi Archives and was instrumental in facilitating the acquisition of two of Barthé’s pieces for the University of Southern Mississippi Museum of Art Permanent Collection. Additionally, he was also instrumental in the realization of the National Small Sculpture Exhibition, which took place in Hattiesburg, MS.

As an amateur photographer, Mr. Ward's mind's eye always seems to be drawn to the documentation of his environment. The e-book is his chosen format for sharing some of the records of his daily walks.

Nice pictures showing the old and the new. It's interesting how much the utility poles and wires dominate our view these days. I like the old buildings the best, they seem to have the most character.
