About the Author

Avid historian Marks Hinton says, “I undoubtedly know more about this area’s streets than anyone on the planet with the possible exception of Jerry Wood (former Deputy Assistant Director of Planning & Development for twenty-five years) and John Raia (who had the same job for fifty-five years).” Known in the media by the nickname “Street Whisperer,” Marks is the first person called or emailed by citizens, librarians and media who want to know about the history of local streets. Marks and Historic Houston Streets have been featured in numerous articles.
