Research - John Alden Shaver Schools

Historical Research


While preparing a proposal for a project, we discovered  a  series of schools and medical buildings that Shaffer's father's partner (L.V. Appleby) had worked on when he was a partner at Shaver & Company (1963-1970), an architecture firm with offices in Menlo Park, California and Salina, Kansas. Some of the award winning schools include:

-Valley Winds Elementary School, St. Louis County, MO, 1964
-Sherwood Elementary School (a.k.a. "Scott"), Greeley, CO, 1964

Other projects included:
-Central Ks Medical Center, Great Bend, KS, 1965
-St. John's Baptist Church, Lincoln, NE, 1966
-Elementary School, S.C. & 1st Baptist Church, Salina, KS, 1955
-Fine Arts Building, Marymount College, Salina, KS, 1957
-Res. Hall, Marymount College, Salina, KS,  1955
