Faculty at Home Lecture Series: Glenn Andres - Fleshing Out an Icon: Old Chapel
Open to the Public
Digging beneath the surface of something very familiar can be richly rewarding. Such is the case with Old Chapel. Beyond its importance to Middlebury College, this structure recorded in the Historic American Building Survey and listed on the National Register of Historic Places has connections that transcend its accumulated local associations. Prof. Emeritus Glenn Andres will discuss research into the multi-layered story of the college’s most iconic building, its generation, its iconography, its place in the history of American campus design, and its circumstantial ties to one of the nation’s most important nineteenth century architects.
Architectural historian Glenn Andres (B. Arch. Cornell University; MFA, PhD. Princeton University) taught the history of art, architecture, and urbanism at Middlebury from 1970 to 2015. Beginning with A Walking History of Middlebury, generated from a seminar on local buildings, he has published and designed lecture, seminar, bicycle tour, and exhibition courses drawing upon Vermont history and the regional built environment. He served as a long-time member of the Vermont Advisory Council for Historic Preservation, and is the co-author of the Buildings of Vermont, in the Buildings of the United States series sponsored by the Society of Architectural Historians.
Hosted by Caitlin Myers, John G. McCullough Professor of Economics.
