The Ittner/Milligan Legacy
A tour of historic St. Louis public school buildings
In the first few decades of the twentieth century, St. Louis embarked on an extensive public school building campaign. Two architects served as Commissioner of Buildings for the Board of Education during this period, and designed most of the public schools that were built during that time: William B. Ittner from 1897 to 1915, and Rockwell M. Milligan from 1917 until his death in 1929. Ittner designed a handful of additional buildings after Milligan passed away. The buildings that Ittner and Milligan designed are among St. Louis's greatest physical assets, bringing a unified style of school design to neighborhoods across the entire city.
The following pages will take you to dozens of their finest works, scattered from one end of the city to the other. The tour begins at the northern edge of the city and moves south.
