Biographical note

Beaumert Whitton was born in Ridgeway, Pennsylvania, in 1910 to Agnes Winchester and Earle Whitton. The family moved to North Carolina in 1916 and he grew up in Charlotte. Whitton attended Charlotte public schools and UNC at Chapel Hill (1928-1930). He was graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1933 with a degree in construction engineering. He joined his father, Earle Whitton, as a field engineer in the family construction business , Southeastern Construction Company, after his graduation from MIT. He became president of the firm in 1959.

Between 1945 and 1950, Whitton served as a member and as chair of the Charlotte Planning Board. During this time, he helped establish a master plan, draft the city's original zoning law, and create Independence Boulevard. In addition, Whitton belonged to a number of civic organizations, including the Charlotte Rotary Club, Charlotte Country Club, and Charlotte City Club. As an active member of the Democratic Party, he served as a Precinct Committee member. His philanthropic activities included financing trips abroad for black students, as well as actively recruiting African American students for the engineering program at MIT.

He married Daphne Amelia Clark of Clarkton, N.C., on July 10, 1937 and they had three children: Margaret (born 1942), Robert (born 1944), and Mary, (born 1945). The Whittons attended Myers Park Presbyterian Church, where Beaumert served as a deacon and an elder. He died in Charlotte on April 24, 1990.
