William Drewin Wight
Birth: Jan. 22, 1882
Death: Oct. 29, 1947

Brothers Thomas and William D. Wight were partners of a very prestigious architectural firm, operating from the early to mid-1900s, in the Kansas City, Missouri area. Buildings they designed include the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Kansas City Life Insurance building, the Jackson County Courthouse, City Hall, the Federal Courts building and Police Headquarters, Southeast High School, and even Col. Thomas Swope's Memorial (gravesite) in Swope Park. If you've been in Kansas City, Missouri, you've seen buildings designed by Wight & Wight.  (bio by: Bill Walker)
