Theodore C. Link
Birth: Mar. 17, 1850
Death: Nov. 12, 1923

Architect. Born in Germany and educated in England and France. He moved to St. Louis to work as a technical representative for the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad Company. He later became an assistant chief engineer at Forest Park and then the superintendent of public parks for St. Louis. He served as one of the architects for the 1904 World's Fair. He was one of only ten architects selected from around the country invited to submit designs for a train station in St. Louis. He won the commission and helped to design Union Station, one of St. Louis' grandest buildings. In addition, his architectural work included many homes, churches and commercial buildings such as the Second Presbyterian Church, the International Shoe Company Headquarters and St. John's Methodist Episcopal Church. In addition, he designed the first of the Carnegie Libraries to be built in St. Louis, the Wednesday Club and the entrance gates to Portland Place. He was active outside St. Louis as a designer of railroad stations and instutional buildings and late in his career designed major government, educational and charitable structures in Mississippi. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
