Prolific architect who designed more than 100 churches, residences, and commercial buildings. He designed the Midland Center for the Arts and the Grace A. Dow Library in his Michigan hometown.
He studied engineering with the expectation he'd join the family business, but then turned to architecture instead after three years, transferring to Columbia University. He graduated in 1931.
He designed a company town for 5,000 Dow Chemical employees just west of Freeport, Texas, which was notable for its lack of straight streets.
His father, Herbert Henry Dow, started his eponymous chemical company, Dow Chemical Company. He and Vada Bennett, daughter of Dow Chemical employee Earl Bennett, were married in 1931. They had three children together: Michale Lloyd, Mary Lloyd, and Barbara Alden.
He was an apprentice to the famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
