Personal

Relocation

Born in Salt Lake City, UT, the Kirk Family lived at 644 Conway Court, Ward 1 of Salt Lake City in 1920; at that time, his immediate family lived with Vine Kirk's family, including her father, mother, May L. Blair (perhaps Vine's sister born c. 1888), and Bernice L. Blair (born c. 1904). Paul Hayden Kirk came to Seattle, WA, as a boy in 1922. The Kirk Family lived at 6327 21st Avenue NE, in a house they owned, valued at $7,000. Kirk reported an address of 4710 22nd Avenue NE in 1937; as newlyweds in 1939, Paul and Helen Kirk resided at 5703 18th Avenue NE, and continued to reside there in 1940 as per the US Census of that year. They paid $37 per month in rent. The Kirks lived at 6216 Ravenna Avenue, Seattle in 1942; He last resided in Kirkland, WA;

Parents and Family

His father, Spencer B. Kirk, listed "interior decorator" as his profession on a draft registration card of 06/05/1917 or 1918 and the U.S. Census of 1920; in c. 1917, he worked at the Walker Dry Goods Company, Main Street, Salt Lake City, UT. Spencer Kirk was born in Tooele, UT, southwest of Salt Lake City, (b. 10/27/1887), while both of his parents came from England.

His paternal grandparents, James (born 03/1845) and Mary Kirk (born 04/1851), lived in Toole, UT, in 1900. His grandfather, employed in 1900 as a "freighter," came from England to the U.S. in 1862, his grandmother in 1868.

Paul Hayden Kirk's mother, Vine H. (Blair) Kirk, was born c. 1886 in MI. Vine Kirk's father, Joseph Blair, (born c. 1864) came from French Canada, and her mother, Clara Blair (born c. 1866) from MI. Paul Hayden Kirk had three siblings, a brother, Blair, born c. 1913 in UT, who became a building contractor, and two sisters, Virginia L. Kirk (born c. 1917 in UT and presumably deceased before 1930) and Marjorie M. Kirk, born c. 1922 in UT.

Spouse

Kirk married Helen Catherine Richardson at 9:00 AM, Thursday, 02/23/1939, in the Thomsen Memorial Chapel, Saint Mark's Episcopal Cathedral, Seattle, WA. His brother, Blair Kirk, served as the best man. They honeymooned at Harrison Hot Springs and Vancouver Island. (See "Miss Richardson Becomes Bride of Mr. Paul Kirk," Seattle Times, 02/23/1939, p. 15.)

Children

In a 1955 biographical profile, he reported having had two children, one of whom was a son, Christopher Paul Kirk, the other was a daughter, Hannah Kirk.

Personal Notes

Paul Hayden Kirk was was stricken with polio as a youngster, affecting the use of his right arm and forcing him to use crutches throughout his life.

The 1930 U.S. Census indicated that both Spencer B. Kirk and Vine Kirk worked as interior decorators for a dry goods store. Paul's brother, Blair Kirk, aged 17, was listed as a "Assistant I.D." at a dry goods store. Paul Hayden Kirk, aged 15, was listed as an "Agent (dist.)" for the Curtis (?) Publishing Company. (Curtis was a powerful publishing house in the early 20th century, producing the magazines, Ladies' Home Journaland the Saturday Evening Post, among others.) The family was immersed in interior design, and it is no wonder that Paul Hayden would develop an interest in architecture. In the 1950s, Kirk became well-known for his designs of medical clinics in and around the Seattle area. He co-wrote (with Eugene D. Sternberg) the book, Doctors' Offices and Clinics, Medical and Dental, (New York, NY: Reinhold Publishing Company, 1955). SSN: 536-01-1523.
