World's Eminent Architects Will Plan Fair Buildings
Noted Names on List of Those Who Will Assist in Great Work
San Francisco-The most eminent architects of the world will design the buildings that will grace the site of the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, which is to be held in San Francisco in 1915.
McKim, Mead, and White, Henry Bacon and Thomas Hastings of NY, & L. C. Mullgerdt and George W. Kelham of this city will assist the members of the architectural commission, consisting of Messrs. Willis Polk, William A Faville and Clarence R. Ward in planning the great international exposition.
Under the rules adopted by the board of directors, the architectural commission will assemble for their first consultation before the plans of the grounds and buildings are submitted for adoption. This meeting is scheduled to take place early in February, and immediately afterwards, work will be commenced upon the design of the individual buildings. In a short time there will be another meeting, at which the architects will submit the plans of the buildings designed by them, and, as soon thereafter as practicable, the final drawings will be prepared, contracts let, and the work of building commenced.
All these architects are well known in the profession, each having played a part in designing some of the famous structures of the world.
