A former employee of Frank Lloyd Wright, Clarence E. Shepard specialized in residential architecture and was an artist and landscape engineer. He designed more than 600 houses in Kansas City, favoring the Prairie School style.

Among his work: the Judge Louis R. Gates House in Kansas City, Kansas, which has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated a Kansas City Historic Landmark.

William Worley, a devotee of local history, discusses Shepard’s life and work. Worley, whose business interests include veterinary clinics, real estate development, and America’s largest chain of one-hour photo stores, co-founded the Kansas City Business Journal in 1982.
