Comment of the Day

On contention about whether architect Norma Merrick Sklarek was the first licensed black female architect: "Norma herself believed she was the first. A New Yorker through and through, she nevertheless had a huge role in Los Angeles for many years, during her time with Victor Gruen, now Gruen Associates. Her memory is precious to me, not only as a mentor, but because she sponsored me for fellowship in the American Institute of Architects. And she had an incredible garden, with joyous annual garden parties!" [@vtanzmann; These Five Anonymous Women Helped Build New York City]
