Was architect E. Fay Jones a Vulcan?

“Star Trek” of course features numerous speculative renditions of a future Earth and far away planets.  But, amidst all the space age imagineering were a few scenes that featured a little chapel from present day Whittier, California – used as the setting for the Vulcan High Court.

E. Fay Jones is perhaps best known for another earlier work, Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, built in 1980:

    So I was browsing of the the blog stats, and looking at some of the links that people click to get to our blog. Unfortunately for you Don, some people just DON’T understand your sense of humor. I happen to like your titles, but like this example, some people got confused.

    As quoted on http://no-detective.livejournal.com/212834.html?style=mine :
    “You can see more images of the Sky Rose Chapel here, and more of the architect E. Fay Jones’ work in this hilarious post that actually ponders his possibly Vulcan heritage.”
    (A link was posted on “this hilarious post” going directly to this page)

    Sorry…I just wanted to point out that people from ALL over are reaching our blog from such a wide variety of locale and points of view. Nonetheless…keep up the conversation, and keep up those creative titles Don! I personally liked the Miami one :)
