About the Program
Charles Dilbeck was born in 1907 in Fort Smith, Arkansas. At an early age he worked in Tulsa creating and adapting plans for builders and developers. His experience as a lumberyard architect contributed to his use and prominent displays of rough and refined woods and handcrafted details. Usually referred to as a romantic and eccentric architect, he took credit for designing the first Texas ranch house.
Jann Mackey is a lecturer at SMU Continuing Education. She has curated exhibitions on Dallas architects Hal Thomson and Charles Dilbeck at the Meadows Museum.
