Meet the Author

Mark Rice grew up in Dallas and has spent much of his career working among the buildings featured in this book. As a youngster, he developed an interest in historic downtown structures while accompanying his father, a court reporter with an office in the Kirby Building. This background, along with a degree in history and long-time interests in photography and architecture led to the extensive research that went into writing of the compelling story.
