a. Acting on behalf of L'Meara, Hills, and Krajewski, Architects. Hagedorn's history[6:354] indicates a complex process leading to construction of this church, as three different architects are mentioned. Hagedorn states that Wurdeman, a Columbus architect (Charles Wurdeman (1871-1961), Architect), provided estimates, and that L'Meara, Hills, and Krajewski provided the drawings. The Krajewski plans were rejected, and "Fr. Provincial then suggested that Brother Leonard, O.F.M., make the plans for the church." Darscheidt "...took great interest and re-drew the plans." Hagedorn further states that Wurdeman then provided the bid, suggesting that Wurdeman was fulfilling the role of builder on this project
