  Richard Morris Hunt
Please join us for Evensong at 5:30 pm
Born in Brattleboro, Vermont, Richard Morris Hunt was the first American to attend the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Returning to the US in 1855, with the conviction that the École's classical style was ideal for this country, he would design mansions for the Vanderbilts and Astors in both New York and Newport. He was appointed head of architectural design for the 1893 Chicago World's Fair and would go on to design the base of the Statue of Liberty. David Garrard Lowe will relate his extraordinary life and career in a lavishly illustrated talk. Reception to follow.

Michael Riedel is the cohost of Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning on 710 WOR.
