Homewood House Lectures Feature Architect Robert Mills

Homewood House Museum this spring offers the second edition of its annual lecture series, Baltimore's Great Architects: A View From 1800, celebrating the architects who created Baltimore's earliest landmarks.

Robert Mills, who designed both the Washington Monument in Baltimore and the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C., will be the subject of three hour-long lectures at 6 p.m. on April 23, April 30 and May 7 in the multipurpose room of AMR I on Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore

The lectures will be given by Washington, D.C., scholar Pamela Scott, who edited The Papers of Robert Mills, 1781-1855, and co-authored the book, Buildings of the District of Columbia. On April 23, Scott's lecture, "A Tale of Two Cities," will compare Mills' designs for his two monuments dedicated to George Washington. Mills' public architecture will be the subject of Scott's April 30 lecture, "The Eighth Wonder of the World." On May 7, Scott will devote her final lecture, "Capitol Competitors," to Mills' work on the U.S. Capitol extension.

A reception in the wine cellar of Homewood House will immediately follow each lecture. The lectures are free to Homewood House members at the $50 level or above; $8 for Homewood members, Johns Hopkins affiliates, AIA and ASID members; and $10 for the general public. AIA and ASID members will receive 1.5 AIA/CES credits for each lecture with registration. To make reservations, call Homewood House at 410-516-8639 or visit the web site at www.jhu.edu/historichouses. Baltimore's Great Architects: A View From 1800 is funded by the Wright Family Foundation and is co-sponsored by the Johns Hopkins History of Art Department.
