Theodore C. Link, FAIA, (March 17, 1850 - November 12, 1923) was a German-American architect.
Born in Germany, Link trained in engineering at the University of Heidelberg and, later, at the Ecole Centrale in Paris before emigrating to the United States. He moved to St. Louis in 1873 to work for the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad company. In 1875, St. Louis Surveyor Julius Pitzman recommended him to the job of superintendent of public parks for St. Louis, and after a four-year interim as a German-language newspaper publisher in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Link returned to St. Louis as one of the architects for the 1904 World's Fair.
Link died in Baton Rouge while working on the Louisiana State University, and was interred at Bellefontaine Cemetery in St. Louis. In 1995 was awarded a star on the St. Louis Walk of Fame.
