— Maher, Claude & Starck —The design of this house typifies the effect of Prairie School concepts of residential design in the first fifteen years of the Twentieth Century. Edward C. Elliott, professor of education at the University of Wisconsin and later president of Purdue University, commissioned the design, which was probably the result of the combined efforts of Chicago architect George Maher and the local firm of Louis Claude and Edward Stark.
