About the Author
After graduating from the Yale School of Architecture in 1972, Richard Nash Gould eventually became a senior associate at Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects before starting his own architectural practice in New York City in 1980. The Whiffenpoof 90th Anniversary in 1999 provoked his initial book research, but the project quickly developed into a history of Yale College in the twentieth century.
