Get to know your local architects better: St. Louis

This starts a series of posts on architects that I have had an interest in over the years. Many were known in their time, but have been forgotten because they are not in the media centers of the US. This post starts in St. Louis, where I completed my undergraduate work in architecture at Washington University. I interacted with these architects through their work through experience, not studies at school, that is for a different post. In later posts, I will revisit some of these architects to discuss their work further and why I took an interest in it. But, a list to begin with:
