From Guides to Historic Milwaukee: Juneautown Walking Tour by Mary Ellen Pagel and Virginia Palmer (1965)…

Of the many architectural landmarks on this tour only three were designed by architects of international renown: the Marine Plaza by Wallace Harrison and Max Abramovitz, the Milwaukee County War Memorial Center by Eero Saarinen, and the University Club by John Russell Pope. Unlike Harrison, Abramovitz, and Saarinen, Pope achieved celebrity not for radically modern conceptions, but rather for such stately, traditional designs as this structure. Among his better-known works in the time-honored classical tradition one may list the National Gallery and Jefferson Memorial in Washington D. C.
