Professor McConnell’s Letter to Class

May 1, 1998

Professor Robert McConnell’s letter to the members of the 1966 Rio Salado design studio was written to congratulate them on the success of their work over the past 32 years and express concern that the Rio Salado Exhibit (Fall 1997) at the Tempe Historical Society Museum “gave almost no credit to all of you and others who participated in the first months of Rio Salado’s life.” The document is a well organized description of the class effort.  Attached are historical notes and the “Log of the Original Slide Presentation” and a list of the members of the “Rio Salado Design Class.”
