Perhaps someone could save me a trip to the Burton - not that I'd mind going, I'm just busy at this point.
The final and fanciest addition to St. Albertus School on E. Canfield, West of St. Aubin, was done c. 1917. Does anyone know who the architect was? Thanks.

here ya go,
St. Albertus School, SW corner St. Aubin and Canfield. Designed by architect Harry Hill in 1916, one of Detroit's largest parochial schools in its day.

Thanks, Lefty. I've never heard of Harry Hill, but further down on your URL, it mentions that the architect Harry Rill (whom I have heard of) designed St Hedwig's Church and St. Albertus School, so I suspect a slight misspelling.
Unless Harry Hill hightailed it out of town after designing the school, became a musical professor, and started selling band instruments in Iowa.
