1928–1929, Kimball, Cowgill, and Beatty. 140 Lynn Ave.
  • Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity House (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

The source for this fraternity house is the French Norman style, resulting in another wonderfully romantic medieval exercise. The walls are of stone and brick, and as in the Delta Gamma house ( CE019), the architect seems to have projected the walls and steeply pitched hipped roof just as high as he could.
