architect from 1906 to
1941? Bennes and his firm not only designed famous Portland landmarks such
as the Hollywood
Theater, but also created hotels, movie theaters, warehouses, and other
commercial buildings
in a variety of styles, throughout Oregon including Baker City, Astoria,
Ashland, La Grande,
Monmouth, Prineville, Coos Bay, and Corvallis. At the August Oregon
