About the winners...

There was nearly a tie for first place--the first person to correctly identify all 22 photos was William Romanow, a research specialist/lab supervisor at LRSM, who has been at Penn since 1961 when he arrived as a graduate student (he began working here in 1964). Also scoring 100%, but a few hours later, was Arnold Denenstein, a research specialist in Physics who has been at Penn for several decades.

Anu Shrivastava, Col '96--a relative newcomer to the campus-- correctly identified all but one of the photos. Her one miss, #21, fooled several people since its curved line suggested the Calder elephant near GSFA. John Washington, Jr., a Penn Police officer for seven years, identified 20 of the photos correctly but was stumped by #21 and by the iron grill of the 38th and Walnut Street parking garage (which bears a striking resemblance to the Module 5 Utility Building near Blockley Hall--both were designed by the architectural firm of Bower, Lewis, Thrower).

Other winners were Robert McKain, director of contract maintenance in Physical Plant, who is in the 25-Year Club, and Sue Torelli, librarian at the Center for Human Resources at Wharton, at Penn for 12 years. Prizes were also won by Dana Caldwell, Col '96, and Tony Dphaxile King, who works part-time at the Annenberg Center and at HUP.

Mann of Facilities Management generously provided this map (too large to reproduce here) showing the locations of 22 Penn architectural treasures shown in Almanac October 17--in addition to lending us the original photographs taken by Drexel students who interned with his office during the summer of 1995. --Ed.
