      An interesting aspect of the AT&T concrete-silo microwave tower near Lee, IL
      is that the facility was given a name in addition to the usual geographic
      place name (Lee). In his history of the site, Terry Michaels notes that "At
      a 1949 dinner ceremony the Lee site was dedicated to Randolph Eide, then
      President of Ohio Bell, afterwards the site was referred to on some plot
      plan drawings as the "Eide Tower near Lee, IL". Eide grew up in nearby Lee,
      IL."

      Terry has contributed the scanned pages of a booklet prepared for the
      dedication ceremony, which I've posted at:
