Articles in the Alton Evening Telegraph from September 24 and October 5, 1912, note that Frank Cox (Tignal Franklin Cox) of Chicago was both the architect and builder for the reconstruction of the old Lyric Theatre into the Hippodrome. The items can be seen about halfway down this web page, which features transcriptions of many newspaper items about theaters in Madison County. The formal opening of the Hippodrome took place on Monday, September 24, 1912.
