WILLIAM VAN EATON SPRINKLE (1906-1965)
DORIS J. (DEE) STANLEY (1926-2018)
William Van Eaton Sprinkle was a native of Mocksville NC, the son of a Methodist minister. He went to high school in Greensboro. After earning his undergraduate degree at Duke University in 1927, he completed an architectural course at Yale University in 1928. For two years he worked without pay in a New York architectural firm, painting watercolors to earn his keep. In 1930 he returned to Durham to work for architect Howard Haines, gaining experience in residential design and church facilities.
Sprinkle opened his own office in 1934 and completed a number of commissions for Duke University. Among them were four rustic log cabins in the woods for the law school dean, who was convinced the best way for students to learn law and social responsibility was as Abraham Lincoln had done, in a quiet and simple setting. Completed in 1938, the complex was described by Time magazine as “an architectural, if not intellectual, wonder for U.S. higher education.”
From 1934 to 1941 Sprinkle designed many fine residences for local professionals. He served in the Army during World War II, designing and planning construction of prefabricated harbors for invasions of Europe. After the war he returned to Durham. In 1950 he hired Doris Stanley, who took over the firm when Sprinkle died in 1965.
In 1963, Sprinkle's wife, Rebecca Kirkpatrick "Becky" Sprinkle was a children's book author. The submission of the manuscript for A House for Leander included an architectural drawing for the dog house by Doris Stanley which was attributed in the foreword to William Sprinkle.
DORIS J. (DEE) STANLEY (1926-2018)
Doris Stanley, a native of Farmington ME, and a 1948 graduate of the University of Maine, majored in psychology and took drafting classes for fun. She worked two years in newspaper advertising for the Bangor Daily Commercial before coming to Durham in 1950 with a friend who was attending graduate school. When the Durham employment office asked about her skills, she mentioned drafting and was told an architect was looking for help, so she took the job with Sprinkle. “The first day I put paper to pencil, I thought I’d died and gone to heaven,” she told interviewers Lynn Richardson and Frank DePasquale in 2007. Sprinkle did his initial drawings at 1/8” scale, then handed them over to Stanley to recreate at 1/4.” She was one of the first female draftsman practicing in North Carolina until 1952 when Lib Lee graduated from the NCSU School of Design. Stanley retired in 1989.
