After earning his B. A. in Sociology, Lamar Henderson went to Ethiopia from 1968 to 1971 as a Peace Corps volunteer, participating
in designing and building projects for the Engineering section of the Ministry of National Community Development and Social
Affairs. He designed, estimated, and built several public works projects which fostered an interest in building and architecture.
After he returned to the United States, Henderson attended the Design School at the California Institute of the Arts where
he received an MFA in Design. He then earned his Master's degree in Architecture from the Graduate School of Architecture
and Urban Planning from UCLA and went on to teach for ten years at the School of Architecture and Planning at the Catholic
University of America.
