Faces with the Names

Some days, weeks even, it is possible to research Chicago Architecture without running across a single face. Not one hint of the men or personalities who built Chicago. Yesterday was different. A trove of portraits - new to me - brought some history to life. Irving Pond: Architect of Lorado Taft's Midway Studios. H.B. Wheelock: architect, mentor to Daniel Burnham. Elmer Jensen: partner to William Lebaron Jenney. John Reed Fugard: Frederick Thielbar's partner on the Jewelers Building. Max Dunning: the Chicago Architectural Club. George Nimmons: Burnham designer and architect of the Reid Murdoch Building.


The portraits here were found HERE . Enjoy the Link.
