— Cobb & Frost —Designed in the the Georgian Revival style by Chicago architect Charles Sumner Frost, who was a partner of Henry Ives Cobb, this house was commissioned by Richard T. Ely, nationally known economist and university professor. In the academic freedom case involving Ely's allegedly radical views, the Board of Regents vindicated him with the statement which encourages "that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found."
