Course Description

After many years, it is now accepted that Julian Abele (1881-1950), an African American, was the chief designer of both the West (Gothic) and East (Georgian) campuses of Duke University. Abele was a highly educated architect in the Philadelphia firm of Horace Trumbauer. In 2016, the Duke Board of Trustees named the central portion of West Campus Abele Quad. This course will discuss Abele and his work by placing him in the context of this time, noting some of the racial challenges he faced, and will include a walking tour of the main quadrangle of West Campus to observe his grand scheme for the new university and its fascinating details. | Lecture (plus questions); Field trip(s)
