    University of Illinois Electrical Engineering Building, 1406 W. Green Street, Urbana, with log periodic antenna. Everitt Laboratory was built in 1947-49 on the site of the first university's president's home. In 1988, the building was renamed Everitt Laboratory after the late William L. Everitt. Everitt joined the faculty in 1944 and served as Dean of Engineering from 1949 until he retired in 1968. In 1958, a unidirectional antenna was installed on the roof as a feed on a "moon-bounce" parabolic reflector. This was the first application of a log periodic antenna. In 1963, a fourth floor, which cost $1,200,000, was added. Today, the building houses departmental administration, classrooms, instructional laboratories, offices and several of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department research groups.
