O’Neil Ford was arguably the most prominent architect to have come from Texas. In his long and distinguished career, he achieved both popular and critical success, yet retained a strong life-long link to his hometown of Denton. It was Ford who designed the expansion of the library in 1969 along with several other Municipal Buildings.
