Last night’s fundraiser for Indiana Landmarks included (among many fabulous features) the announcement of this year’s 10 Most Endangered List.  Thinking of all the beautiful structures in need of saving and preservation or those that have been lost –or saved–inevitably brings to mind the architects of decades ago who created those very structures. Here are a couple pages from the 1914 Indianapolis City Directory, with quite a few familiar names of well-known Indianapolis architects. Fascinating to find where their offices were, as well. Never realized Herbert Foltz had an office in the Pythian Building. Which names do you recognize?

    I just dropped off a whole lot of information on Elmer E. Dunlap to Indiana Landmarks that I’ve been researching for about four years. He designed many schools in central Indiana, besides the courthouses he designed.

    True Livingston Brookie is a distant relative of mine, born in Frankfort, IN, in 1883. He designed several Carnegie libraries (Kirklin, Mooresville, Lawrenceburg, New Castle), as well as Temple Tompkins’ house in Irvington.
