Mon, 21 Apr 2014 21:30:09 +0000

For more than a century, a family of Fort Worth photographers has captured vivid scenes across Dallas-Fort Worth and around the state. Four generations of Williams photographers have shot thousands of images, ranging from Pancho Villa's soldiers to author Larry McMurtry, from western landscapes to street life in Fort Worth. The University of North Texas recently acquired thousands of these pictures. KERA’s Anne Bothwell talked with Byrd Williams IV, whose photos, along with those of his father, grandfather and great-grandfather, are included in the collection. It includes more than 10,000 prints and 300,000 negatives.

How A Dallas Man Bought A Crumbling Texas Town And Made It Something SpecialHow A Dallas Man Bought A Crumbling Texas Town And Made It Something Special

Fri, 18 Oct 2013 22:25:49 +0000

( Update, Jan. 27: Brooks Gremmels died over the weekend.) A few years ago, Brooks Gremmels escaped Dallas and retired to a tiny East Texas town called Ben Wheeler. The place was falling down. Buildings were vacant. Roofs were gone. Doors were missing. Weeds grew in the sidewalks. People didn’t have much hope for the Van Zandt County town. But Gremmels did. “Maybe I could spend a little money and clean up the town," he thought. So, parcel by parcel, the multimillionaire cleaned up Ben Wheeler.
