Biographical/Historical Note

Thomas Harding was a prominent Little Rock, Arkansas, architect. His son, Thomas Harding II, started architectural work as a teenager in 1898 with Charles Thompson. He was offered a partnership in Thompson's firm in 1916, and the firm later became known as Thompson and Harding. The firm completed many significant projects in Little Rock, including the Federal Reserve Bank, the Exchange Bank building, the Markham Street Central Fire Station, and Winfield Methodist Church. Thomas Harding III was born on July 7, 1911, in Little Rock to Thomas Harding II and Mary Rice. He graduated from Little Rock Senior High School (now Central High School) in 1929, then attended Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. He also worked as an architect for a brief period in his father's firm, but eventually became a successful commercial photographer and an internationally recognized fine art pinhole photographer.
