William J. Dodd (1862-1930) worked as an architect in Chicago, Louisville, and Los Angeles. He built his most notable works in Louisville, including the Fourth Avenue Methodist Church, the Samuel Grabfelder house, the Louisville Presbyterian Seminary, the Edwin H. Ferguson House, St. Paul's Episcopal Church, the Seelbach Hotel, and the Western Branch of the Free Public Library. From 1896 until 1904, he partnered with Arthur Cobb, an engineer originally from Cleveland. He moved his practice to Los Angeles in 1913.
