David B. Barrow and Charles F Stahl both graduated from the University of Texas. David Barrow was a student of Harwell Hamilton Harris, and would later work for Mr Harris for several years. In fact Mr Barrow was the only student that would be elevated to status of associate, both an honor and an endorsement of the shared vision of the two and the talent Mr Barrow had. Harwell H Harris even designed a home for Mr Barrow and his wife which was built in 1955. 

Barrow & Stahl formed their office in Austin Texas in the 60's and produced both commercial and residential works from the 1960's until present day.
