Bibliography: On the expansion of the campus around 1916, see: Phyllis Ball, A Photographic History of the University of Arizona, 1885-1985, 2nd printing, with corrections (Tucson: University of Arizona Foundation, 1987), pages 95-96

Remarks: It is unclear whether Trost was involved in making or revising a campus plan for the University of Arizona in 1916 or at any other time. However, the plan does show South Hall, and Trost might have been commissioned to remodel this building on one or more occasions; an addition to South Hall was constructed in 1916, but it is not certain that Trost designed it. The blueprint in the El Paso Public Library was part of a Trost & Trost file which went to Ponsford Brothers after the Trost & Trost firm was dissolved; Ponsford Brothers later gave the file to the El Paso Public Library.

Prepared for the El Paso Public Library by Lloyd C. and June F. Engelbrecht under a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, 1990.
