CHARLESTON — Walter Burley Griffin, who designed the Eastern Illinois State Normal School campus, is now engaged in the construction of Canberra, the new capital city of Australia, which he designed. Griffin is a graduate of the University of Illinois. Mr. Griffin had been an associate of Frank Lloyd Wright for several years. In 1906, he resigned his position. His first independent commission was the landscape design for the Normal School at Charleston, IL.
