Architect
An architect is a person who plans, designs, and reviews the construction of buildings. To practice architecture means to provide services in connection with the design of buildings and the space within the site surrounding the buildings, that have as their principal purpose human occupancy or use.[1] Etymologically, architect derives from the Latin architectus, which derives from the Greek (arkhi-, chief + tekton, builder), i.e., chief builder.[2] Professionally, an architect's decisions affect public safety, and thus an architect must undergo specialized training consisting of advanced education and a practicum (or internship) for practical experience to earn a license to practice architecture

LeRoy Smith House
The LeRoy Smith House is a private house, designed by Alden B. Dow, and located at 9503 Frank Street in Algonac, Michigan. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1] History[edit] LeRoy Smith was a salesman for the Hobart Company, which manufactured paint sprayers, battery chargers, and welding equipment. After working for Hobart for a time, Smith founded his own company to distribute Hobart equipment. Smith and his family lived in Highland Park, Michigan, but owned this plot of land along the St. Clair River near Algonac for summer trips. In the late 1930s, the Smiths decided to build a summer house on the property to take advantage of the river view. Their daughter Maxine's parents-in-law had commissioned a house from Alden B. Dow in 1938, and although they had ultimately decided not to build, they highly recommended Dow to the Smiths. The Smiths contacted Dow in 1940, and construction began on this house in December of that year
