Note:
The Wilmington Dispatch noted on March 23, 1917 that Leitner, formerly of Wilmington, had provided plans for two high schools in Charlotte, North Carolina, to cost $150,000 each and a third to cost only $18,000. On Feb. 24, 1919, the Wilmington Star reported that a redesign had reduced the cost of one of the high schools to $135,000. This is probably the former Charlotte High School, which became the Central High School in 1920.
