My father-in-law knows something about everything, or so he believes. I've taken my wife's elbow in the ribs on a number of occasions when I've called BS. I just move away from her and continue the barrage.

He first began his work as a draftsman in 1885, without ever having completed a formal degree. He acquired his position with Sullivan in 1888. So in fact he had actual experience before working for Sullivan, and demonstrated his ability to draw in Sullivan's style in interviews with the firm. So no bullshit actually involved there. Obviously the credential they were looking for was the ability to produce work, not a degree or experience per-se.
