Procter Hall's meanings

In response to: Procter Hall

The photograph of Ralph Cram’s Procter Hall at the Graduate College (Final Scene, April 7) reflects and befits this generally unknown facet of the University beautifully. The image captures the spatial and the iconic sense of the architecture remarkably well.

Ceremonial/sacred spaces in English church architecture originally began as domestic refectories in English residences. The picture illustrates with convincing clarity both these meanings and their dialogue.
