Here’s something from deep down in my laptop, a letter from Ralph Adams Cram to William Ward Watkin that I found ages ago in Ray Watkin’s papers. I’m not completely certain what book he’s referring to and am a bit haunted by the thought that there are some great photographs floating around somewhere that I haven’t found:
Much of the time we just don’t pay attention to it and sometimes I get aggravated that people keep taking the exact same picture over and over but there’s no denying that Cram is right about this. It’s really a smashing success of a building:
Bonus: We’ve got a skeleton crew working in the Woodson and I was able to go in for a while this afternoon. Campus is still extremely quiet, but I did run across two young women who came to have their pictures taken, the first to celebrate her graduation from Elkins High School, the second her quinceañera. They lifted my spirits.
