Robert Endicott Faxon, Sr. (1915-1993) was listed as the "designer" of the Camelback Shopping Center, not the architect. He joined the American Institute of Architects in 1950, so he presumably passed his architectural registration examinations c. 1949 or 1950.

The Camelback Shopping Center represented the United States at an international exhibition of Modern architecture, held at Lima, Peru, c. 1948.

Architect Eberhard H. Zeidler (born 1926) collaborated with the firm of Cornoyer-Hedrick, Architects and Planners on a renovation of the Camelback Esplanade c. 1983-1984.
