Richard Nickel: Dangerous Years

Author Richard Cahan will present a lecture on his third book dedicated to the photographer and preservationist Richard Nickel, who was also one of the founders of Glessner House Museum in 1966. Cahan’s most recent volume utilizes Nickel’s own writings - from long letters to quick notes - that convey Nickel’s commitment to preservation, the joys of discovery, and moments of despair as Louis Sullivan’s buildings fell one after another during the 1950s and 1960s. His words and photographs continue to inspire us today. Copies of the book, co-authored by Michael Williams, will be available for purchase and signing.
