Note:
During the 1930s Stillwell began a long relationship with the Western North Carolinia Teachers College (now Western Carolina University). On his own and with Six Associates, he planned several buildings, beginning with Breese Gymnasium. It was erected with WPA assistance; some accounts state it was built with student labor and of native stone.
