Julian Abele, Architect and the Beaux Arts uncovers the life of one of the first African American architects. Despite racial segregation at the beginning of the 20th century, Abele received his architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
Wilson traces Abele’s progress as he went on to become the most formally educated architect in America at that time. Abele later contributed to the architectural history of America by designing over 200 buildings throughout his professional career, to include the Widener Memorial Library at Harvard University and the Philadelphia Free Library.
Architectural history is a valuable resource for those studying architecture today. As such, this book would be beneficial for academics and students of architecture and architectural history with a particular interest in minority discussions.
