Biography

Patrick Horsbrugh was a Belfast native but spent much of his life in the United States. He served in the Royal Air Force and the Royal Canadian Navy in World War II. After the war he taught architecture at Harvard and in North Carolina and Illinois before moving to the University of Nebraska in 1960. Because of a Nebraska state law limiting foreign nationals from holding state jobs for more than five years, Horsburgh was forced to leave in 1965, going first to the University of Texas and then to Notre Dame, where he lived in South Bend for the rest of his life.
