"It was a huge undertaking for so young a man and I think few of us realize what a task he had been called to undertake. He was well chosen and preformed well. I doubt if any architect in the country at the time could have produced work superior to that of Mr. Beman when you consider the nature of the work." - Louis H. Sullivan
