The Encyclopedia of Arkansas has much to say about architect John Parks Almand, including his education at Columbia University. Richard Kenyon discovered his Methodist church at Portland and that one led to the church at Fordyce—two of more than fifty Arkansas churches he designed. Each of these is unusual, possibly even innovative, but neither seems to be an obvious example of the A-A idea. So I include them here as examples of independent thinking.
