Restoration architect Raiford Stripling rescued some of Texas’ most historic sites from oblivion, including Ashton Villa in Galveston, the French Legation in Austin, Independence Hall at Washington-on-the-Brazos, and Presidion La Bahía in Goliad. This handsome volume, inspired by the 1983 symposium on Raiford’s life and work held at the Institute of Texan Cultures, reflects the author’s months of statewide travel, research, and interviews with those who knew Raiford, as well as with the man himself. It is an invaluable document for anyone who appreciates architecture, history, and infinite dedication to both.
