#LETLUCE A CURATED SOCIAL IMPACT JOB DIGEST – 7/17/16
Last week I visited the Hill-Stead Museum in Farmington, CT and I was inspired to learn about the life and legacy of Theodate Pope Riddle (February 2, 1867- August 30, 1946). A trailblazer for her time, she was one of this country’s earliest important women architects who received her license in 1916 and was accepted into the American Institute of Architects in 1918. Her legacy, the museum and its stunning art collection, her numerous architectural treasures, and the founding of Avon Old Farms School continue to make an impact. I’m always inspired by people who go against the grain, buck convention, and live a life that is truly unique.
