His work on the 1898 Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition in Omaha made him nationally known.
Kimball designed many buildings across Nebraska and several in Omaha such as the Omaha Public Library, St. Cecelia’s Cathedral, and the Omaha World-Herald building.
He served as the National President of the American Institute of Architects from 1918 – 1920 and served on the Nebraska State Capitol Commission from 1919 – 1932.
Thomas Kimball was inducted into the Nebraska Hall of Fame on June 25, 2019.
