|Building Notes||Both Charles H. Bebb and Carl F. Gould came into their partnership having already established themselves in their respective fields as individuals and members of highly successful design teams. Joining their complementary strengths, Bebb and Gould became associates in 1914 with the agreement that Bebb would act as engineer and partner in charge of management, contracts and specifications, and Gould as principal designer and planner. In the early decades of the 20th century, Bebb & Gould flourished, designing over two hundred projects, churches, civic buildings, homes, commercial structures and monuments. The Home Economics Hall, built in 1916, was renamed Raitt Hall in 1946 after Effie Raitt, director of the Home Economics Department. |
