Homewood House Museum Offers
Architectural Lecture Series

Homewood House Museum is offering a new series of architectural lectures focusing on the great architects who created Baltimore's earliest landmarks. The inaugural series, Baltimore's Great Architects: A View From 1800, will take place on April 19, May 3, and May 17 and feature three lectures on B. Henry Latrobe by Charles E. Brownell, professor of art history at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. Brownell has lectured widely on Latrobe and is co-editor of Latrobe's View of America, 1795 -1820 and The Architectural Drawings of Benjamin Henry Latrobe.

Brownell's one-hour lectures will be given on Thursdays at 6 p.m. in the Lecture Hall of AMR I, the dormitory building just north of Homewood House. A reception in the wine cellar of Homewood House will immediately follow each lecture.

Brownell's first lecture on April 19 is entitled, "Meeting B. Henry Latrobe" and will explore Latrobe's work in Baltimore, other than the Basilica, which includes the non-extant but very important building The Exchange, his design for the Washington Monument and his influence on Davidge Hall. His second lecture on May 3, "Latrobe, Jefferson and the Basilica of the Assumption," will focus on the Basilica, considered Baltimore's greatest building, and the role Thomas Jefferson is now thought to have played in its design. The final lecture on May 17, "Latrobe, Jefferson and the University of Virginia" will deal with the influence Latrobe is now believed to have had on Jefferson's masterpiece.

These lectures are free to Homewood House members, $7 for JHU affiliates, AIA and ASID members and $10 for the general public. AIA and ASID members will receive one AIA/CES credit for each lecture with registration. To make reservations, call Homewood House at 410-516-8639. This year's lecture series is made possible through the generous support of the Wright Family Foundation and is being co- sponsored by the Department of the History of Art, Johns Hopkins University.
