Herbert W Armstrong   
Church of God

Born: July 31, 1892

Office: Apostle

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

First, let me quote from a letter written by Mr. Arthur S. Mann, FAIA, senior vice-president of the world-girdling architectural and engineering firm of Daniel, Mann, Johnson and Mendenhall. Then I want to tell you how this achievement came about. Mr. Mann writes: This letter is about the new auditorium and is a panegyric to a magnificent accomplishment that we believe is without peer in all of North America…. The auditorium has the classic dignity of the ancient Grecian Parthenon, and a suggestion of that famous design, although of different proportions. The surrounding colonnades are of glistening quartz which glow in contrasting whiteness to the emerald green-black walls of the building. The column soffits of Italian glass and white and gold mosaics also recall the greatness of Greece and Rome, and a degree of craftsmanship that many believe had disappeared in this century. Of all the buildings of North America [he might have said of the world] created since the landings of the first English and Spanish colonizers, there is none that exceeds the magnificence of the new Ambassador Auditorium in quality of materials, craftsmanship, and felicitous design.
