  4. I know it won’t count for any points, but I am going to guess that N. W. Overstreet designed Brookhaven Elementary; the massing of Brookhaven seems similar to Bailey, although they are very different structures.

  5. For some reason I was thinking R.W. Naef, he of “smutty buff brick” and kind face, but now that I come to put my hands on that information, I can’t find it. I do know Naef did the 1937 Brookhaven High School, so possibly also did this 1941 beauty. I’m going to have to track that down now, because I know at some point I took a picture of the plaque inside this building.

    You’re right that it’s the same shape as Bailey, with the auditorium projecting at the far end, but I believe the auditorium was added around 1950.
