Dr. Ted A. Campbell is a speaker and an author of books, articles, and other works on Christian history. He serves as associate professor of church history at SMU’s Perkins School of Theology. Ted’s works include nine books published that have been translated into Spanish, French, Chinese, Korean, and Portuguese. A former member of the Landmark Commission of the City of Dallas, he also writes occasionally on the local history of the Dallas area and on the history of his own family.
His topic of “Before the Park Cities” reminds us that the area we call the Park Cities has a long history extending back to the native Americans. Early maps show our area cities were influenced by people before us in the routes of where Preston, Greenville and McKinney roads all developed.
