Alumni Lunch and Learn

September 30, 2011 at 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Mark Schara, a Michigan alum and an architect with the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) in Washington DC, will be visiting Taubman College on Friday to give a presentation about his work. He will also talk about the HABS/HAER summer internship program.

In 1933, during the depression, HABS was established as a national repository for drawings and photographs of early American architecture. The accumulated record of seventy-five years in the field is both prodigious and priceless. Lodged in the Library of Congress are more than 350,000 measured drawings, photographs, and short histories of more than 35,000 sites throughout the country.

All welcome. Light lunch will be provided for those who RSVP and attend the presentation.
To RSVP, email Beth Berenter at berenter@umich.edu with your name and your program/year.
