Kendall Miller
"William Giddings Farrington"

Kendall Miller is the grandson of William Giddings Farrington, noted developer of shopping centers and homes in Houston and Bellaire in the 1940s-1950s. Kendall will speak on the continuance of his grandfather's legacy on the founding of Tanglewood subdivision and the family property on Post Oak Blvd. William Farrington hired excellent architects and required craftsmanship on his buildings. His shopping centers reflect the high quality of his designs that remain icons today.
