    I was glad, and sad, to read this article about Benjamin McAdoo Jr.  As an architect who considers himself steeped in northwest residential design, my lack of familiarity with McAdoo's work is troubling.  Thanks to the Seattle Times for publishing.  Hope you enjoy the articles attached.
    Be well.
