Fayetteville (Washington County) native Edward Durell Stone became one of the foremost architects of the mid-twentieth century. Stone attended a number of schools, including the University of Arkansas (UA) in Fayetteville, but never obtained a degree. He designed a number of buildings in Arkansas and around the world and developed an international reputation with his designs. Here, he can be seen standing to the right of his friend Senator J. W. Fulbright outside the entrance to one of his most well-known buildings, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC.
