Narrative:
Saint Anthony Hall of Delta Psi fraternity was designed by Trinity alumnus Josiah Cleveland Cady. Cady went on to become a prominent architect in New York, designing the original Metropolitan Opera House and the American Museum of Natural History. The building shows the influence of William Burges, whose Long Walk range was nearing completion. Cady's edifice indicates that he was looking at Tower House, Burges's own home in London. Saint Anthony Hall has recently been restored.
