Fayette County

Death: 1962

Wallace Frost was an architect. Frost (1892-1962), a renowned designer who grew up in Pennsylvania, was an architect for the Air Force in World War I. During his military service, he met architect Albert Kahn, who asked Frost to come work for him in Michigan. The men combined their talents on large projects such as the Detroit Public Library, the General Motors Building in Detroit, and the William L. Clements Library in Ann Arbor. Frost built his first house (for himself, in Birmingham) in 1921, and left a legacy of some 40 uniquely designed Birmingham homes dating from the 1920s through the 1950s.
