- Paul R. Williams, a renowned African American architect, proud Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. member and close friend of Thomas, designed the original star-shaped building that supported the entertainer’s dream that no child should die in the dawn of life.
- Williams was the first African American member — and later a Fellow — of the American Institute of Architects. He conceived the design of five spokes radiating off a central core — a concept that Thomas likened to the star of St. Jude.
- Williams donated the design, which was brought to life when the original St. Jude building was constructed in 1962.
