Location: Plaut Room

On Wednesday, November 9th at 7:30 pm the World Events, History and Culture Book Group will discuss Triumvirate: McKim, Mead & White: Art, Architecture, Scandal, and Class in America's Gilded Age by Mosette Broderick.

Triumvirate tells a rich, fascinating saga of the most influential, far-reaching architectural firm of their time and of the dazzling triumvirate—Charles McKim, William Mead, and Stanford White—who came together, bound by the notion that architecture could help shape a nation in transition. They helped to refine America’s idea of beauty, elevated its architectural practice, and set the standard on the world’s stage.
