Presentation Rendering

Hand colored detail from the presentation rendering that appeared in The Western Architect.  The annotation in the lower right corner is in the hand of William Gray Purcell, and says "Alfred Owre!!"  Alfred Owre was a dentist prominent in the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry; his brother, Oscar, also a dentist, was a client for whom the firm built a fine house.
