Kennet Bjork;

Henry O. Jaastad has spent most of his life in America and he received his architectural training at the University of Arizona. He became a leading architect in Tucson, he was chiefly interested in Spanish missions, and the native Indian architecture. Jaastad has been called the leading authority on the missions of Arizona, having made exhaustive studies of this subject both in his own state and in Sonora, Mexico.

Among the buildings he have designed are churches, schoolhouses, and YMCA structures, the schools include the Navajo Indian School at Ganado, Arizona and the Menual School for Mexican boys at Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Safford School at Tucson, is one of his most ambitious works.
