"Albert Neely Hall was born in Chicago in 1883, graduated from Lewis Institute in 1901 and Chicago School of Architecture in 1902. He and his wife, Bertha Cassidy Hall, moved to their home at 177 E. St. Charles Road in Elmhurst in 1916. Hall was an accomplished craftsman. He wrote a syndicated column that ran in newspapers across the country. He also contributed to magazines. In the December 1911 issue of Delineator he wrote an article titled "Christmas Gifts You Can Make in Your Workshop," suggesting a key-board, a necktie-rack, a spool rack, and a sleeve board. As Hall wrote, "useful, home-made Christmas gifts, bound to last for a year at least, and the cost of all combined will not exceed a dollar at the most." Hall also authored sixteen books including The Boy Craftsman, Home Handicraft for Girls, and Homemade Games and Games Equipment. He had a workshop in his house where he developed lans, pictures and drawings of handicraft projects described in his writings. ". Very Good+ .
