"Colossus," "visionary," "giant" are superlatives used in the mid-20th century to describe Edward Durell Stone (1902-1978), a celebrity architect whose wholly unique modern aesthetic of "new romanticism" played a crucial role in defining middle-class culture. Framed between the Great Depression and the oil embargo of the early 1970s, the distinguished career of the native Arkansan is represented on four continents, in thirteen foreign countries, and in thirty-two states- his masterpiece the American Embassy chancery in New Delhi, India.

Author Dr. Mary Anne Hunting is an architectural historian living in New York City. She was the guest speaker at HFW's 2014 Preservation Awards program, discussing Stone's work worldwide as well as his local work- Fort Worth's City Hall building.
