On Sunday, May 21, Architectural Historian Karen McNeill, Ph.D, will give a presentation on Craftsman style architecture, with an emphasis on Julia Morgan-designed buildings. Karen McNeill is the leading expert on Julia Morgan and has published multiple articles on the subject, including, most recently, “‘Women Who Build’: Julia Morgan & Women’s Institutions,” in the Summer 2012 issue of California History. Her work focuses on women and gender in the architectural profession as well as how Progressive Era women used the built environment to expand their roles in society as consumers, reformers, educators, and professionals.
Lunch will be served at 12:30 pm, provided by Summer Thyme’s Deli and Café. There will be time to explore the house and grounds after lunch. The program will take place from 2 – 4 pm, with time for questions. Tickets are $23 NSHC & Cal Alumni members; $28 general public.
This event is co-sponsored by NSHC and Cal Alumni.
