Charles Klauder, 1872-1938: Klauder was born in Philadelphia and trained in architecture at a young age, joining his first firm at age 15. In 1910, he became a partner at the firm of Frank Miles Day. As partner, he designed Franklin Field  (1922), the Boy Scouts of America Headquarters (1929), as well as a great number of collegiate buildings. Scholars suggest that Klauder designed the Wetherill Mansion under the auspices of Frank Miles Day.
