Charles Motier Nes Jr. was born in 1907 in York, Pennsylvania. Nes received his undergraduate and graduate degrees in architecture from Princeton before making his way to Baltimore. In 1938, he designed the office of Palmer and Lamdin, a firm at which he was an associate, in a bauhaus style that has been dubbed “Baltimore Art Moderne” (Hayward and Shivers, 2004). Nes was an officer in the US Army, from 1942 to 1945, serving active duty during World War II. During his service, Nes was awarded the Bronze Star and the Croix de Guerre. Nes went on to become a partner at Nes, Campbell and Partners, which in turn grew to be Fisher, Nes, Campbell & Associates. Fisher, Nes, Campbell & Associates would create Modernist works in Baltimore, such as the Maryland State Office Building at 301 W. Preston St. in 1958 and the Baltimore Gas and Electric Company building addition in 1966. Nes became president of the Baltimore AIA Chapter in 1950 and held this position until 1952. Three years later, Nes became a Fellow of the AIA. Nes went on to become National AIA President from 1966 to 1967. Nes passed away on  April 30, 1989 in Cockeysville, MD
