It took a recent trip to the Grand Canyon for me to learn about one of St. Paul’s most accomplished and fascinating but least remembered luminaries.

I am the author of MARY COLTER: ARCHITECT OF THE SOUTHWEST, and did considerable research on Colter's St. Paul years. She was a leader in the burgeoning Arts and Crafts movement and a teacher at Mechanic Arts High School. Colter was fairly well known locally then, so it's especially sad that she is not recognized today in her home town.

I have been fascinated by Mary Colter since first seeing her work at the Grande Canyon. We have also enjoyed stopping at a number of the Harvey House hotels on which she collaborated. Her respect for the beauty of the Southwest and it's culture shown in all she helped create. She should definitely be recognized by the St Paul-Minnesota community. K. Magnuson
