Excerpt: The Capitol extension project had been under way less than two years when it was transferred to the War Department. It was not immediately clear how the architect would function within the new arrangement, but Walter would no longer engage in business dealings, contract negotiations, or the hiring of any workmen except those in his drafting room. This aspect of the change was not altogether unwelcome, as he considered the business part of the job bothersome. Glad to be rid of that headache, Walter looked forward to spending more time engaged in purely architectural pursuits. He could not have easily foreseen that from his drafting board he would watch the Capitol extension project veer from the course he and the Fillmore administration had charted for it.
