Regarding Luther Memorial Chapel. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "The Holy Trinity Lutheran Church of Madison commissioned this building as a chapel for UW students in 1914. Claude and Starck executed a small but excellent Elizabethan Revival design at a time when the firm was designing primarily in the Prairie School style. The building features Tudor-arched windows and entry, and full height, polygonal stone-clad pilasters derived from castellated and fortified houses of Tudor-period England."
