Ward Miller is the Executive Director of the Richard Nickel Committee and Archive. Nickel’s name has received considerable attention as an early proponent of historic preservation. He lived in Park Ridge on Grove Avenue in the 1950s. His archives contain thousands of photographs of the buildings designed by architects Louis Sullivan and Dankmar Adler, and are the basis of the Mr. Miller’s new work published last November.

His talk will address the fascinating story behind the compilation of this long-awaited, comprehensive volume of the masterworks of this architectural collaboration, which would not have been possible without Nickel’s passion for photography and preservation.
