Note:

William Deitrick’s “Lombard Gothic Style” design for the prestigious Raleigh High School won in a competition that included several established architects. Built of local warm-colored stone, the towered edifice received a design award in 1930 from the NCAIA and established Deitrick’s reputation. Deitrick and other members of his firm designed multiple additions to the rear which have generally complemented the original building. Several of Deitrick’s drawings for the “Raleigh High School” (Broughton High School) are in the Guy E. Crampton-William Henley Deitrick Papers and Drawings at Special Collections Research Center, NCSU Libraries, Raleigh, North Carolina.
