Claude and Starck, Architects
— 1911 —This house is attributed to Madison master architects Claude and Starck and is an excellent example of the Prairie style of architecture. Louis Claude was influenced by the work of architectural masters Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright and George Elmslie while working in Sullivan's Chicago office where the Prairie style developed. This house exhibits many style defining characteristics: fa?ades of brick and stucco, horizontal emphasis, wide eaves and ribbons of leaded glass casement windows. Local dentist William Beecroft commissioned this home for himself and his wife Lucy.
