This is a photograph of Thomas Wilson Williamson who was born in Hiawatha, Kansas on August 4, 1887, the son of Leaman Wilson Williamson and Rebecca Ella (McCulloch) Williamson. In 1902, Thomas' father moved the family to Topeka, Kansas when he became the minister at the Presbyterian Church. Thomas graduated from Topeka High School in 1907 and attended the University of Pennsylvania. He returned to Topeka in 1911 and worked a short time for the office of the state architect and then opened his own architectural firm. Thomas designed the Topeka High School building, Mulvane Art Museum, First Methodist Church, Jayhawk Hotel, Watkins Scholarship Hall at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, and other schools, courthouses, and public building in Kansas. The photograph was copied from The History of Kansas, vol. V, 1928.
