Carol Street, an archivist at Ball State University's College of Architecture, explained, "Edward Pierre was no mere architect." Street, who oversees the drawings and documents archive, describes Pierre as one of the state's greatest designers and urban planners. She calls the Pierre Wright collection, (architect George Wright was Pierre's long-time business partner) one of her best in the collection.
