AUBREY YOUNGUE ARANT, JR. (1925-2002)

Arant was born in Charlotte and graduated from Central High School in 1943. After serving in the Army Air Corps, he graduated from NCSU with an engineering degree in 1949 and moved back to Charlotte to work for H&S Lumber. He worked for John Crosland Company from 1960 to 1987. He retired in 1990 after working three years for Smith Allen Construction Company.  On the side, he loved designing houses and did several in Charlotte. However, his only Modernist house was on Benita, below.
