The top architect in my hometown in the 1920’s through 1940’s, who built and lived in the home and raised his family where we now live, passed away only eleven days after JFK was buried. He built many standout properties, the most famous being the 1930 tallest office building in the town, which is featured as a Notable Example in the Wikipedia page on the Architecture of the Night. It featured the first use of General Electric’s Thyratron  tube dimmer, plus a revolving beacon on the dome. The landmark building became known as the Castle in the Cornfields. There are certainly not a lot of castles in the Midwest!
