He suggested that I get a copy of the Camden vision plan, so I would be informed.

Scrapbook -- May 25, 2011

I saw some pictures from the royal wedding. The bride was very pretty. But she was out-done by some of the guests. These ladies wore hats that were -- well, different. Someone explained to me that one of the important things is for the ladies to wear a hat. It must be different from the one she wore to the last wedding she attended. I guess that she will wear a dress, perhaps even a new one. But the hat is the thing.

“Robert Mills: Designs for Democracy”

Robert Mills was the first American born and trained architect. He called himself "Robert Mills, Architect of Public Buildings." Indeed, Mills established a new scale and standard for public buildings in Washington, D. C. when he designed the Treasury Building, the Patent Office, and the General Post Office in the 1830s and early 1840s. In other parts of the country, Mills designed buildings that were sensitive to regional values and local architectural traditions. Always his attention was on permanency and fireproofing for his public buildings.
