Perry C. Langston

For over twenty years, Langston was a lead architect and possibly one of the few designers at the Bank Building & Equipment Corporation. He designed prominent structures in mid-size and large cities such as the Hughes Aircraft Employee Credit Union (1968) in Los Angeles, CA, and Mutual Community Savings Bank (c. 1965) in Durham, NC, as well banks for small towns including the A.G. Gaston Building (1959) in Birmingham, AL; Merchants & Farmers Bank (1972) in Columbus, MS; and, Ripon Federal Savings & Loan Association (1967) in Ripon, WI.  During years between 1964-1967, Langston gave back to the community by serving on the Technical Illustration Advisory Committee for the Senior College District of St. Louis, Missouri where the Bank Building & Equipment Corporation was headquartered.
