Sweetheart Of Sigma Phi--Thorsen House, Craftsman Masterpiece


Frat boys are customarily considered the scourge of the earth, at least in all right-thinking online circles.  On the other hand, 16 members of the Sigma Phi chapter at UC Berkeley live in one of the state's architectural treasures, the Greene and Greene- designed Thorsen House. Tracey Taylor, writing for the Financial Times, investigated, and found that not only were these brothers residents, they're also the caretakers. 

Gamble House, in Pasadena, is perhaps better known, but no one is in residence.
