Clearly the vanguard of aeronautical design.

Form does not always follow function? If Prof. Zerbe hadn't died so early I would like to have asked his opinion regarding goat glands. Some scoffed at Drs. Wheeler and Brinkley! But not Harry Chandler.

1896 - Chandler residence, 503 N Broadway

Harry Chandler receives honorary degree


1934 - From the roof of the Times
