American architect in Portland, Oregon, in the mid-twentieth century, regarded as one of the early practitioners of the Northwest Regional style of Modernism. Largely self-taught, Yeon’s wide ranging activities encompassed planning, conservation, historic preservation, art collecting, and urban activism. He was a connoisseur of objets d’art as well as landscapes, and one of Oregon’s most gifted architectural designers, even while his output was limited.

John Yeon died at his home in Portland on 13 March 1994 at age 83 of congestive heart failure.
