Quincy Lee was a pioneer in the construction of quality, low-cost housing in San Antonio
who later became a leader in commercial and industrial development. He passed away in 1997. Raised in Perrin,
Quincy Lee came to San Antonio in 1937 after receiving an accounting degree from the University of Texas at Austin.
He initially went to work at Frost National Bank. After World War II, Lee joined with C.L. Browning, a contractor,
to build single-family residences. His good friend, banker Charles E. Cheever Jr., noted that Lee was a great philanthropist,
but was adamant about his donations not being publicized.
Lee was the first San Antonio builder to use prefabricated structural trusses and wall sections.
Some of Quincy's accomplishments include:
