  • Wonderful blog, James! Two of my favorite topics - Academic Hall and Louis Houck! Put them together - and VOILA! Great history!

    Joel Rhodes' book is a wonderful source of information, with details from primary sources. Houck's descendants let him use Houck's letters and papers from his library.

  • I remember making my own "private tour" in the mid 1940's. Needless to say I never made it to the top. Still to a small kid, the interior of the dome was "awesome."

  • While in town Legg designed four houses. At least two still stand. Where are they?
