During the 1930s, Walter Derwin Teague complete several projects for Ford Motor Company and the Ford Family. This paper looks at Teague's designs for Ford's exhibitions at the 1934 Chicago World's Fair, the 1935 California Pacific International Exposition, the 1936 Texas Centennial Central Exposition, and the 1939 New York World's Fair. The four rooms that Teague redesigned in Edsel and Eleanor Ford's home in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan are also examined. Unity, one of Teague's favorite design principles, is discussed at length and used to assess the progression of Teague's designs throughout the decade.
