A photograph of the English Nationality Room in the Cathedral of Learning. The English Room was designed in 16th-century Tudor Gothic style and reflects major aspects of American History: English language and law. It is the largest of the Nationality Rooms and contains a large amount original material from London's House of Commons, which was destroyed by bombs during World War II. Each window bears a coat of arms representing an English city or a famous English person from history. The English room was dedicated November 21, 1952. This room, along with 25 other Nationality Rooms all with different architectural styles, was conceived in the 1920s by sociologist Ruth Crawford Mitchell as a means of linking the university with the immigrant culture of the steel-working families.
