    Architect 
    • The following letter signed by him to The Registrar of the Board of Architects of NSW dated 19 November 1959 stated: 
       
      “By this letter I respectfully apply for restoration to the Roll of Architects in New South Wales. 
       
      It is now approximately 3 years since my name was removed from the Roll.  During this period I have been working as a draughtsman for John P Tate and Associates and a letter from that firm in regard to my employment and conduct is attached.
       
      I would appreciate the Board’s consideration of my application for restoration to the Roll.  A favourable decision on the part of the Board would mean a great deal to me personally.”
       
      Hunter’s address at that time was “Chatsbury”, 6 Ithaca Road, Elizabeth Bay and he was nearly 64 years old.  Accompanying letters of support were from A W Cozens, Architect (2b Castlereagh Street,Sydney); D S Littlemore, Architect, Rudder Littlemore and Rudder, 60 Hunter Street, Sydney, Port Moresby and Rabaul; and David D Gordon, Architect,Partner, J P Tate and Associates. 
       
      DS Littlemore refers to Hunter as “a loyal and true friend that he has known for 30 years”.  He states that “I feel that it would be not only a just decision to re-instate Mr Kirkpatrick as a Registered Architect, but a kindly and gracious understanding of the immense value to Mr Kirkpatrick to be permitted to conclude what remains of his professional career in the practice of Architecture”.
       
      David Gordon’s letter states that “he has known him for 19 years and that Hunter had control of large works being undertaken us (J P Tate and Associates) for Municipal Councils, Tooth and Co Ltd, Clubs, Companies and Private Clients.  All clients have expressed appreciation, their trust and confidence in the manner he handled their projects.  I have no hesitation in adding my own appreciation of his ability, loyalty and friendliness and consider him a person capable, able and desirable to be registered as an Architect”. 
       
      JP Tate’s letter says he has known Hunter for 30 years and that Hunter joined the firm in May 1956 as Senior Draughtsman and that he “had carried out his duties proficiently and conscientiously and during the time I have had an opportunity of observing his work and conduct very closely and have found he is precise in his technical work and careful in his contract accounts”.  He further adds “I am aware of the reason why his name was removed from the Roll, and hold the view that his personal conduct warrants his re-establishment”.  The Board granted Hunter’s application on 24 November 1959.
