ROBERT WILLAM (BOB) LEATH (1937-)

 After graduating from high school in Sanford NC in 1957, he attended NCSU’s School of Design in product design. Shortly before graduation in 1962, he participated in a design seminar at Dean Henry Kamphoefner’s residence the night of the Cuban Missile Crisis, recalling the blare of sirens that interrupted their studies as everyone hunkered down for the possibility of an imminent nuclear holocaust, and Mrs. Kamphoefner made sandwiches. Leath turned to residential architecture and worked with the firms of Simpson & Savage in Raleigh and MacMillan and MacMillan in Fayetteville NC.  Leath later became the director of residential design for the March Corporation, a development company, and was deeply involved with the construction of houses large and small throughout Fayetteville, as well as the development of Foxfire and Gates Four country clubs. In 1975, he and wife Lynn formed Leath Associates, a firm that specialized in custom residential and interior design.
