This biography from the Archives of AskART:
William Keck was born in 1908 in Watertown, Wisconsin. He studied architecture at the University of Illinois and received a B. A. in 1931. After graduating, he joined his older brother George Fred Keck, who was an accomplished architect, in Chicago. One of the most recognized innovations of the 1933 Century of Progress Exhibition in Chicago was the Kecks' glass and steel "House of Tomorrow."

William left the office to serve in the military from 1942 until 1945. Upon returning from service, he formed a partnership with George Fred -- Keck & Keck -- and worked in that firm for the rest of his career. The Kecks were pioneers in the field of passive solar architecture and avant-garde modern design and received numerous awards for their work. The apartment building they designed and lived in at 5551 S. University Avenue in Chicago has been designated a Chicago landmark. The Kecks were awarded the First Illinois Medal in Architecture from the University of Illinois-Champaign in 1980. William was elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects in 1969.

He died in Chicago in 1995.
