Oil baron's stately mansion in Warren is reminiscent of England's grand Tudors. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 10/20/2001)
On Millionaires' Row. Among Warren's most elegant turn-of-the-century residences is the Logan-Wallace house on West Third Avenue. It took workers three years to build this seven-bedroom brick English Tudor mansion for H. A. Logan, a wealthy oil refinery owner.
As current owner Beverly Sibertson recalls, Harry Logan was married to an English actress and "he wanted to make her feel at home." So he commissioned New York architect Albert Joseph Bodker to design a house reminiscent of one in the English countryside.
Obituary for Harry A. Logan, Jr. (1925-1989). From the New York Times.
Harry Jr. graduated from Princeton University. His absence from any of the Warren High School y yearbooks from the 1940s leads me to assume that he attended private boarding schools before going to college.
