Architect Leonard S. Bailey designed the Woodward Theatre. OKLAHOMA TODAY MAGAZINE (Vol 32, Number 4, Fall 1982, pp 18, 19, 20) published a complete history of this movie house, listing original financier, owners, construction company, etc. There are also nice theatre photographs.

Roadside Oklahoma pages have sharp photos of the Woodward Theatre.

I think that the article in Oklahoma Today, cited in a comment above by Cosmic Ray, got the architect’s middle initial wrong. Interent searches for an architect named Leonard S. Bailey provide no results that are not related to that magazine article and this theater.

However, the career of noted Oklahoma City architect Leonard H. Bailey is well documented, and provides many Internet search results. At least one theater, the Liberty in Oklahoma City, is attributed to him. Surely it must have been Leonard H. Bailey who was the architect of the Woodward Arts Theatre.

In response to Joe Vogel’s comments on 4 December 2010:

My name is Bailey Prior, and Leonard Henry Bailey is my great-grandfather. I can verify that he was the architect of the Woodward Arts Theatre.

LHB was born in London, England, 12 August 1880, came to Oklahoma City in 1903 and was the architect of many buildings within the state, including the Masonic Temple, which now houses the museum of the bomb memorial.
