Ingleside Hall merited preservation

To the Editor:

In the interests of accuracy, the final phrase of your article (Ingleside Hall demolition, 8/7/13) which now reads, “… the building (is) too altered to be considered for preservation” might have better read, “Given the significant alterations, it’s doubtful the building would qualify for designation as an official Chicago Landmark.” But given its age (1896), architect (Charles Atwood, of Reliance Building fame), high style architecture, history (once the Quadrangle Club) and location (one of only three vintage brick campus buildings left west of the main quadrangle) a wise owner might well have considered it for preservation and restoration.
