Dear Colleagues:

At the Winter Foundation Events in Phoenix and Tucson January 24-28, we had the opportunity to meet with many Illinois architectural alumni – many who continue to support the School financially!  Besides luncheon and dinner events in both cities, we also had the pleasure to see Bruce and Ingrid Hutchings’ winter home in Green Valley, Arizona, south of Tucson.  There we met three new architectural alums.
