John D. Forsyth
Located in the southwest corner, this room is a tribute to the Master Architect of the Marland Estate, John Duncan Forsyth. In 1925, Forsyth learned that E. W. Marland was going to build a mansion that would reflect his status as an oil baron, so he pursued Marland and convinced the oilman to hire him. Thus began a rich architectural legacy left by Forsyth in Ponca City. Forsyth felt very fortunate to hire talented artists to hand paint the ceilings, and he loved being afforded the luxury of using decorative wrought iron and original stone carvings. In addition to the mansion, Forsyth designed the Artist Studio, the gatehouse, the chauffeur's cottage, the stables, and the administrative building on the Marland Estate. In the mid-1930's, when Marland was governor, Forsyth designed the state office building in Oklahoma City.

John Duncan Forsyth was born in 1886 in Florence, Italy.
He received his training at Edinburgh College, Scotland, and at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France. He practiced in Tulsa and the surrounding areas from 1925 until his death in 1963. Forsyth designed several homes in Tulsa including his own residence at 29th and Birmingham. In addition, he designed Southern Hills Country Club (1936 with D. McCormick) at the corner of 61st and Lewis, All Souls Unitarian Church (1957) at the corner of 30th and Peoria and Daniel Webster High School (1938 with W. Wolaver and R. Kerr) at 1919 West 40th. He is perhaps best known as the designer of the Marland Mansion in Ponca City (1926) and the Will Rogers Memorial in Claremore (1938). They hired John Duncan Forsyth to design the structure. Forsyth used the Streamline Art Deco style, as he did for the Daniel Webster High School in Tulsa.
