To plan their high school, Salisbury leaders consulted Columbia University education experts George D. Strayer and Nickolaus Engelhardt on current ideals of design and employed Sayre to design it (Manufacturers' Record, Dec. 25, 1924); it is well known as his design. They employed another outstanding practitioner, Earle S. Draper, to plan the landscape.
