The original Architect Mr. Harford Field is suspected of being a student of Zook. A 1969 obit for the original owner, John McC. Price was located. He passed away at age 85 in Hendersonville, NC, where he had moved after retiring thirteen years earlier. He had been the district manager for the Allen-Bradley Company, where he was employed for over 30 years. Mr. Price served as a lieutenant in the Navy during WWII. He was one of the founders of the Graue Mill Association and it's second president. Even after he moved from the area, he continued as a member of their Board of Advisors until his death. Architect Harford Field practiced in the area for about 11 years, 1929-1941, building many Hinsdale homes in spite of the Depression. HHS has some short articles from The Doings referencing homes built by Field and some recognition he received.
