Considered the most important living Black architect in the United States, McAfee was born on December 25 in Los Angeles CA and grew up in Wichita KS.  He served in the Army from 1953-1955.  Inspired by Paul Williams, McAfee graduated in Architecture n 1958 from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln as one of the few Black architects in the US. .  In 1955, he married childhood friend and singer, Gloria Myrth Winston.  In 1963, McAfee began his own firm in Wichita, the firm grew and opened satellite offices in Dallas and Atlanta. 

McAfee tackled social inequalities with a focus on designing affordable housing and utilized a modular approach, going to far as to open a prefab manufacturing plant in the early 1970's that hired and trained people from the community located at 3603 S. Oliver. Sadly the plant closed just 21 months later due to glut of existing housing, low demand, and FHA's reluctance to guarantee loans.

McAfee designed several structures for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta GA plus a MARTA station.  In 1999, the manufacturing plant was shut down after facing debt. In 1976, he was President of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA). His awards include the AIA Whitney M. Young Jr. Award (1999). In 2006, he transferred the firm to his daughters, architects Cheryl Lynn McAfee Mitchell and Charyl Frena McAfee-Duncan.  In 2020, the Wichita McAdams Park Pool was renamed the McAfee Pool in his honor.

McAfee is known for many projects including the Jackson Mortuary, McKnight Art Center, Ulrich Museum, and Calvary Baptist Church, all in Wichita KS.  Bio adapted from Wikipedia. His archives are at the University of Kansas.
