Summary "The evolution of our institutions of learning, from one-room schoolhouses to the modern educational campuses of today, reflects both the growth of our populace and our shared cultures and traditions. Educational Architecture in Ohio reminds readers of this heritage as author Virginia McCormick comments on the philosphies behind the architectural styles of Ohio's schools and colleges, libraries, and opera houses." "Ohio offers an excellent perspective for viewing and interpreting educational architecture. The heritage of its pioneer settlers, the diversity of its immigrants, and its strategic geographic position for westward migration created a history typical of much of America. The state's education buildings reflect this rich history and culture."--BOOK JACKET.
