Vince Lee

Vince Lee came to the valley in 1967, following graduate school at Princeton and a tour in the far east with the U.S. Marines. He joined long-time Wilson resident, John Morgan, as a partner in the firm of Design Associates architects in 1969 and led the firm for 30 years following Morgan’s retirement in 1972. During the same period, Vince was a seasonal mountain guide and owner of High Country West, Alpine Adventures, the first local representative of The Nature Conservancy, and a three-term member of the Wyoming Quality Council in Cheyenne. He was a founding board member of the Jackson Hole Land Trust and served as President from 1981-1986. His son, Christopher, took over Design Associates in 2002, and Vince and his wife Nancy now live in McElmo Canyon, near Cortez, Colorado.
