Your Husband Bobby Ray Peaco*ck RALEIGH Retired architect James Lew- is Brandt, 85, died peacefully on February 6th, 2012 at his home in Raleigh. He success- fully battled Lymphoma for 10 years, until succumbing to Acute Lymphatic Leukemia. A celebration of his life will be held at Pullen Memorial Bap- tist Church, 1801 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh on Saturday, February 18th at 11am. He leaves his wife of 39 years, Marilyn Morrissette Brandt; son James Bartie (Bucky) Brandt of Raleigh, son Robert Kelly Brandt and his wife, Lacey Pfaff Brandt of Wellesley, MA; stepson Ed- ward Newton Upchurch and his wife, Elizabeth Kelly Upchurch of Raleigh; grandchildren Mar- got Kelly Brandt and Beau Law- rence Brandt of Wellesley MA; and Meredith Forest Upchurch, Kathryn Walker Upchurch and Caroline Kelly Upchurch of Ra- leigh. Brandt was born September 20, 1926, in Brooksville, MS to Bartholomew Brandner Brandt and Lucile Peterson Brandt.

He was named for his uncle, James Lewis Peterson, an army reserve pilot who was killed in an automobile accident just weeks before Brandt was born. He grew up in Washing- ton (NC), Durham, and Green- ville, as the family moved with his academic career. But most of his summers were spent in Brooksville where his grand- father owned a general store, a house and farm. Brandt enlisted in the Navy in 1944 serving as an Electronics Mate. At the end of the war, he was assigned to San Francisco where he ted the USS Avery Island, and the USS Wharton with electron- ics in support of the post-war atomic bomb tests.

He turned down an opportunity to conduct the testing at Bikini Atoll, and, instead, moth-balled an aircraft carrier escort, the USS Nassau, in Bremerton, WA. came home from the Navy calling himself and obtained work in October, 1946, at a radio station in Green- ville, WGTC, as a broadcast engi- neer. One of his on-air duties was to produce the coverage of local minor league baseball games. They have the budget to broadcast from the park, so an announcer would read a teletype transmission of the play-by-play and describe it as if he were at the game. job was to provide realistic sound effects, like crowd noises, by playing sound bites from a record at the appropriate time.

father, Dr. B. B. Brandt, was appointed to the zoology faculty at North Caro- lina State University in Janu- ary, 1947, and so the young man moved with his parents to Ra- leigh. He chose to study Archi- tecture at the new NCSU School of Design because, he said, like to see things get In 1951 he became the editor of the Publications of the School of It contin- ued to be published regularly for at least 27 years.

Brandt graduated in 1951 with honors having earned a B. A. in Architecture. That summer he married Mary Louise Kelly, a St. College English teacher.

They were divorced in 1971. In November 1951 he was hired by Greensboro architect Edward Lowenstein. Brandt was the most proud of the A. M. and Ruth Fleishman Residence in Fayetteville for which he did the drawings and detail design.

It featured a double cantilevered roof which Brandt described as In late November, 1952, Brandt joined G. Milton Small in Raleigh and became his as- sociate architect. They shared an excitement for Modernist architecture, and they collabo- rated on many notable buildings in the Triangle area and beyond. These include the 1954 Gregory Poole showroom and on Hillsborough Street (with George Matsumoto), the 1957 Home Security Life Building in Durham, the 1962 Northwest- ern Insurance Building, now occupied by the Raleigh Ortho- paedic Clinic at 3515 Glenwood Avenue, the 1963 Bank Building at 119-191 Hay Street in Fayetteville, and the 1971 North Carolina Medical Soci- ety Building at 222 North Per- son Street, Raleigh. At NCSU, buildings they designed include the 1959 Talley Student Cen- ter, which includes his work on Stewart Theater, Price Music Center, and the 1960 University Bookstore (now demolished).

Also with Milton Small, Brandt laid out the Raleigh sub- divisions of Drewry Hills and Oak Park. In addition, he de- signed several of the houses in Drewry Hills. But, his masterpiece, per- haps, is his own 1955 house, since sold, at 122 E. Drewry Lane in Raleigh trianglemodernisthouses.com/ brandt.htm). The Mies van der Rohe inspired design includes a plate glass back wall overlook- ing Crabtree Creek.

The roof was originally covered with custom made arches (since reno- vated) which provided shade and gave the house a futuristic look. The building is suspended on a series of columns, and the cantilevers on the sides and back make the house appear to hover above the steep, wooded lot. After his professional retire- ment in 1991, Brandt devoted his time to genealogical re- search. He published his work in two bound volumes which were distributed to libraries and family members. He researched Peterson for 5 years, and Brandt for 9 years.

A dream of his was when he and his wife Marilyn bought a residence at the beach and they enjoyed many happy hours sailing on Bogue Sound. He passed on to his children and step-children his interests in music, art, photography, sailing, electronics, and woodworking. Brandt was an active mem- ber of Pullen Memorial Bap- tist Church for about 50 years. He served on the building and grounds committee when the church renovated its 3rd into classrooms. He had a special interest in Hope Center and its demonstrated ability to help people reshape their lives.

Those wishing to make a gift in his honor may send that gift to: The Hope Center, Pullen Memorial Baptist Church, 1801 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, NC 27605.
