..[T]he house. a mass of piled up blocks with terraces, outer staircases and
fireplaces everywhere inviting freedom and comfort. A dignified
unpretentiousness prevails." As for the Hoovers themselves, they intended to

The way in which Mrs. Hoover planned the Stanford house makes a story in itself.
She thinks of a house as an elastic thing, never entirely finished, always growing
with the needs of a family, or as being adaptable to those changing needs. She
