Ben Ledbetter grew up in the South, took a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Auburn University in 1972, and after apprenticeships with Harry Wolf in North Carolina and Robert Hecht and Ed Burdeshaw in Georgia, returned to his native Mississippi in 1976 to begin his own practice. Ledbetter says he forfeited his aspirations of becoming the William Faulkner of southern architecture in his early thirties, and left Mississippi for Harvard University, where he received a Master in Architecture degree in 1984. He was a Teaching Fellow at Harvard, subsequently taught for two years at Tulane University, and then until 1994 directed the architectural studies program of the Wesleyan University Art Department, teaching architecture as well as drawing courses. He has been architect of record for over fifty completed buildings.
