The Architecture of O'Neil Ford
By David Dillon
A technological innovator who bridged Texas'rural
past and urban future, O'Neil Ford (1905-1982) was
the most influential Texas architect of the twentieth
first critical study

Ford's links to the
regional and eclec-
tic movements of
the 1920s and
1930s, his use of
postwar technology and materials, and his influence
on other architects in Texas and the Southwest.

Taking the Waters in Texas
Springs, Spas, and Fountains of Youth
By Janet Mace Valenza
Here is the first comprehensive history of Texas' heal-
ing springs. Valenza tracks the rise, popularity, and
decline of the"water cure"from the 1830s to the
present day. She follows the development of major
spas and resorts, such as Mineral Wells and Indian
Hot Springs near El Paso, as well as that of smaller,
family-run springs. She also describes how mineral
waters influenced patterns of settlement, transporta-
tion routes, commerce, and people's attitudes toward
the land. Period photos and quotes from those seek-
ing cures offer vivid glimpses into the daily life at the
springs, which Valenza lists and describes county-by-
county in the appendix.
