Inscription.  Charles Zeller Klauder (1872 - 1937), a Philadelphia architect and prolific designer of educational buildings, was selected as Franklin & Marshall's architect and planner in 1923. During the next seven years, he designed Franklin-Meyran and Dietz-Santee residence halls, Hensel Hall, and Frackenthal Laboratories; assisted in the design of Biesecker Gymnasium and Fackenthal Pool; and prepared the College's first master plan. Best known for his work in the collegiate Gothic style, Klauder designed the Cathedral of Learning and Heinz Chapel at the University of Pittsburgh , Memorial Hall at the University of Delaware, and buildings at Yale, the University of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania State University, Cornell, the University of Chicago, Wellesley, and the University of Colorado, among others.
