Notes

a. Blueprints for a three story apartment house for Davis at 20th & E Streets depict two large units per floor with a living room, dining room, kitchen and breakfast nook, and a single bedroom at the rear. These plans are the only known project associating F. C. Fiske with the partnership of Jesse B. Miller and Fritz Craig. Fiske & Miller were briefly partners in 1913-1914. This unrealized project can be dated to 1925-1926 as W. Clyde Davis purchased land at the southeast corner of 20th & E Streets in 1925, then sold it in 1926 to First-Plymouth Congregational Church, which built on the block a few years later.[10]
