This long-lived partnership represents the work of J.
Linden Heacock and Oscar
M. Hokanson. This firm designed a number of residences,
including those for developer William
T. B. Roberts, but they also undertook considerable school
design, perhaps encouraged by Heacock's position as trustee with
both the Friends Central School and the Elwyn Training School
(Media, PA). When other Philadelphia firms faltered during the
Depression years, Heacock & Hokanson continued to design schools
for suburban school districts such as Abington, Haverford, Yeadon,
