Hah! Not there, but Eliel Saarinen did move to the US in the early 1920's and lived until 1950, so he might have had the equivalent here.

For those of you who may not know this, his son Eero Saarinen, after working for the US OSS (the predecessor to the CIA) in WWII, became one of the most significant architects in the US. If you've been to Washington Dulles airport, he's the one who designed that famous terminal building. In 1958 it was astonishing, futuristic, and one of the first things that started the change of Washington DC from a sleepy southern town to a true international city.

Sorry for the detour, Folob. If you didn't post such excellent and interesting photos you wouldn't get me started thinking about history.

Ted

PS: He also did the St. Louis Arch. The man had vision.
