Richard T. Sizemore received his degree in Architecture and a degree in Architectural Engineering at Kansas State College (now Kansas University) in Manhattan Kansas in 1948. He accepted a job at Dow Corning Corporation in Midland. He was not eligible to receive an architectural registration in Michigan because he had not worked under a registered architect for four years. Instead he passed the civil engineering registration, as his employer was a registered civil engineer. Mr. Sizemore designed several buildings at the Dow Corning Midland Plant and later became project manager for the Dow Corning Headquarters east of Midland, which were designed by the Fletcher Thompson Architectural Engineering Company in Bridgeport Connecticut. He retired from Dow Corning in 1987 after 40 years of service.
