While working on a project down at Fosforus, I met a very nice man and lifelong Austinite. Marshall Kuykendall (pronounced “kirk’ in dawl”), who grew up on the land now known as The XV Ranch, was kind enough to invite me to his home in southwestern Travis County and allowed me more than a few minutes to photograph him. Turns out I knew his late wife Karen, through her work as an actress at Zachary Scott Theater. I also know his niece, Laura, who was my son’s preschool teacher a couple of years ago. Mr. Kuykendall is a highly respected and accomplished land broker and has a ton of great stories about growing up on his family’s ranch.
