Description

From 1925 to 1964, the firm of Wyatt C. Hedrick, Architect-Engineer, helped shape the face of Fort Worth and Texas, designing such landmarks as Fort Worth's Texas and Pacific Railway Terminal, the U.S Post Office, Will Rogers Memorial Complex, Houston's Shamrock Hotel, the original 12 buildings at Texas Tech University, and buildings on 24 college campuses and 169 school districts, along with hotels, hospitals, clubs, stores, theaters, factories and military installations throughout the state and the world. The firm was responsible for over $1.3 billion of construction, not adjusted for inflation. Learn about this man of distinction, Wyatt C. Hedrick, his firm, and the time and place in which he practiced through archival photographs, drawings and anecdotal stories told to his grandson, Ames Fender.
