    Phil Gruen at WSU Steam PlantI’ve been interested in the entirety of the built environment for as long as I can remember. But I didn’t know anything about the vernacular until (now outdated) textbooks and exam methods of my undergraduate years attempted to reinforce differences between “high” and “low.” This never made much sense to me, and hardly reflected a more equitable perspective about the world I had learned in my youth. Raised in the public school climate of Berkeley, California in the 1970s and 80s, I remember holding hands with fellow classmates and singing “We Shall Overcome” more than I recall singing the Star-Spangled Banner. But I sang that too: attending major league baseball games and finding myself as intrigued by stadium architecture as much as the games themselves.  Nobody told me that I wasn’t supposed to find entertainment- or theme-oriented buildings worthy of critical inquiry. For better or worse, I always thought buildings such as these told fascinating stories about culture, and I have directed much of my research towards them.

    Affiliation with VAF (I’ve been a board member since 2019 but a member for much longer than that), provides me—all of us—with the institutional gravitas necessary to ensure that my interest in otherwise unorthodox topics or perspectives will find a home. It also reminds me that pulling over to photograph a fast-food restaurant or my images of the view from my hotel window—no matter how mundane—not only will find a curious audience, but one that likely has more of such photos and is analyzing them in critical ways revealing important new insight into issues of race, class, gender, or justice.   

    I consider myself highly fortunate to have had my passion for this sort of intellectual and physical exploration fostered, encouraged, and questioned by Peter Hales, Bob Bruegmann, and Mitchell Schwarzer during my M.A. program at the University of Illinois at Chicago, by Dell Upton and Paul Groth during my Ph.D. years at U.C. Berkeley, and by old (and new) VAF colleagues far and wide.  Lessons from them continue to resonate: maintaining rigor, but never losing the passion for fieldwork, no matter its form. This is especially the case because I’ve spent the last seventeen years teaching at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington: a tiny place nestled into the endless rolling hills of wheat and lentils in the remote, yet striking, setting of the Palouse in eastern Washington.  The layered complexity of the region is not immediately evident. But I am eternally grateful to VAF for helping me learn how to read a small rural community and its people—methods that have also helped my students recognize the richness of any place. So long as they are willing to explore.

    I’ll admit, though, that my appreciation and understanding of my local community is strengthened by learning about places elsewhere. I can’t wait to join up with you in San Antonio 2021, this time for real (fingers crossed): I know I’m not alone in highlighting the incredible VAF conferences, tours, and guidebooks, which themselves are worth the price of admission.  Until then, we’ll continue our efforts remotely. As the chair of VAF’s education committee, I’ll do my best to keep us traveling virtually by moving the guidebooks, along with course syllabi, into the digital sphere.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me at jpgruen@wsu.edu if you have a syllabus to share. It is imperative that we continue to raise awareness about what we do.

    Ed and Susan working together at the Owens-Thomas House, SavannahEdward A. Chappell died in hospital of a heart attack on Saturday, July 25, 2020. He was born in Farmville, Virginia, October 16, 1948, the only child of Edward Acree and Rosa May Chappell. His wife, Susan Buck, survives him. Ed had made Williamsburg his home since 1980 when he was hired to rebuild and direct the Architectural Research Department at Colonial Williamsburg. He retired in 2016, by then holder of an endowed chair, the Shirley and Richard Roberts Director of Architectural and Archaeological Research.

    His education and early work experience were preparation for this career appointment and for a wide variety of special projects in Virginia, Annapolis, Charleston, Jamaica, Bermuda, Antigua, and elsewhere. Taken together, they earned his reputation as a leading preservationist and historian of early Atlantic-world architecture. He attended Ferrum College and the College of William & Mary before taking a graduate degree from the School of Architecture at the University of Virginia. Ed was one of a small army of young men and women who found starter jobs with state historic preservation offices following passage of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. Working summers and eventually full-time, he crisscrossed the backroads of Kentucky and Virginia surveying and recording hundreds of historic structures and archaeological sites before he finally settled down in the job at Colonial Williamsburg.

    He brought his field experience to the Foundation at just the right time. Historians there were busy rethinking its educational mission. Their goal was to retell an American history more broadly conceived. They sought to take into account everybody who’d had parts to play in a more complicated story. Restored Williamsburg needed places to tell those stories. During Ed’s long tenure, he and the able young architectural historians he hired into his department added numerous missing buildings to the restored townscape—two slave quarters, a market house, a retail store, a hospital asylum, a coffeehouse, a city-county courthouse, a Revolutionary War armory, and a tin shop. Before he retired, plans were in hand to rebuild a working playhouse. His vision took in the environs of the 18th-century capital as well. He argued successfully to enlarge the greenspace around the Historic Area and to create scenic easements along the wooded approaches to the town. He encouraged the president and the trustees to invite the celebrated British neo-classicist architect Quinlan Terry to design additions to Merchants Square.

    Ed and his colleagues generously shared Colonial Williamsburg’s largesse with many sister institutions. He and they lent their expertise to Monticello, Mount Vernon, Prestwould, Drayton Hall, Historic Charleston Foundation, Historic Annapolis, and to many private house owners as well. Ed always insisted that this side work was more than an even-steven trade: “When we see more, we learn more. We take away more than we give back.” Many of these outside projects found their way into publications, sometimes co-authored, sometimes Ed solo.

    His irresistible curiosity about folk buildings everywhere took him literally to the ends of the earth. For pleasure or professionally (it was hard to tell the difference) he sought out world architecture. He traveled far and wide to Russia, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Bali, Nepal, Bhutan, and China, and that isn’t counting innumerable side trips to England and Europe. Everywhere he went he measured floorplans, profiled moldings, and sketched hardware. These drawings, among other personal papers, he has donated to the Virginia Historical Society.

    The breadth of Ed’s scholarship was a measure of his fascination with the makers of things and the things they made. He was an avid collector, a sorter and hoarder, and ultimately a generous donor: handwoven baskets, wood carvings, street paintings, exquisite Christmas tree ornaments, Chinese communist kitsch, and, most important of all, modern Pueblo pottery. For years he and Susan traveled to the Zuni reservation in New Mexico. There he interviewed potters who were trying to fit their fresh artistic visions to a venerable Zuni pot-making tradition. He concentrated on the work of a single modern master, Randy Nahohai, and ended up documenting and writing about a whole family of potters and the spiritual culture that underpins their work. Along the way Ed acquired a notable study collection of Pueblo pottery, soon to be shared with visitors to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, the Folk Art Museum at Colonial Williamsburg, and the Heard Museum in Phoenix.

    Back home in Williamsburg Ed was a persistent citizen advocate for good civic and collegiate design. He served on architectural review boards for both the City and the College. Gentle persuasion was his preferred gambit, but, if need be, he could lower his voice, stretch out his Farmville drawl, and stare down college presidents, city officials, and even his employers. For his trouble the College gave him its highest stewardship award. For his steadfastness his fellow citizens came to regard him as the town’s foremost champion of architectural and landscape design that could and should be as forward-looking today as it was 200 years ago.

    Ed Chappell was as many-sided as the miscellany of fans and friends who now mourn his sudden death. He leaves behind his two cousins Jeanne Edenzon and Kathy Powell, whom he regarded as sisters, and also their children who deeply loved and admired their “uncle”. When he married Susan, he joined a New England-bred family. They too embraced him and were entranced by his many travel adventure stories. He enlivened the lives of all who knew him.

    A memorial service will be scheduled when it is safe to gather and share stories of Ed’s expansive and generous life. Meanwhile and in lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made payable to “Colonial Williamsburg for the Ed Chappell Architectural Research Fund" and sent to P.O. Box 1776, Williamsburg, VA 23187.

    republished from the Jewish Federation of Central New York:

    Donald William Meinig, Ph.D., professor, author, husband, father and grandfather, passed away Saturday, June 13, in Syracuse. He was 95. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 64 years, Lee. Don was known as a gentleman scholar, dignified friend and community leader and supporter.

    Meinig was Professor Emeritus, Geography and the Environment and Maxwell Research Professor of Geography at Syracuse University. His research included historical, regional and cultural geography as well as landscape interpretation. His most ambitious and well-known work is the four-volume series The Shaping of America (published 1986, 1993, 1998, and 2004). He also concentrated on literary spaces and geography, stating, "Literature is a valuable storehouse of vivid depictions of the landscapes and lives of modern-day society." Upon publication of volume four of The Shaping of America, Meinig was presented with the Presidential Achievement Award by the Association of American Geographers, its highest award, as well as the J.B. Jackson Prize for the best book interpreting the geography of America. 

    Professor Meinig was a Fulbright Scholar, a Guggenheim Fellow, and a Fellow of the National Endowment for the Humanities. He was the first American geographer to be elected as a corresponding Fellow of the British Academy, in 1991. In 1965, the Association of American Geographers awarded him a citation "For Meritorious Contribution to the Field of Geography," and the American Geographical Society gave him their Charles P. Daly Medal in 1986. Meinig received an honorary doctorate (D.H.L.) from the Maxwell School at Syracuse University in 1994. The Geographical Review devoted a special issue to him in July 2009. In 2010, he was elected as a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

    Raised on a farm in Palouse, Washington, Meinig enlisted in the Army in 1943 and served stateside as a 2nd lieutenant in the Corps of Engineers until his honorable discharge in 1946. He received his bachelor's degree at Georgetown University and earned graduate degrees in geography from the University of Washington in 1950 and 1953. Starting in 1950, Meinig held a faculty position at the University of Utah. In 1958 he left Utah for a visiting position at the University of Adelaide in Australia under a Fulbright scholarship and in 1959 he joined the Syracuse faculty. He was chairman of the geography department at Syracuse from 1968 to 1973. Don lectured at universities around the world and he and Lee traveled widely, living briefly in Australia, Scotland and Israel. 

    In 1992, Meinig gave the Charles Homer Haskins Prize Lecture, titled "A Life in Learning," saying, "It has been such a richly satisfying thing that when I reflect upon my life. It seems as if from the moment I first looked out in wonder across the hills of Palouse I have lived happily ever after."

    He was loved and admired by many. Together he and Lee raised three daughters -Laurel Meinig Brewster, Kristin Cominsky and Lee Meinig. Other family members include his sons-in-law, Bob Brewster, Sidney Cominsky and John Tate; grandchildren Anna Cominsky Gatesy and her husband Sean; Elise Cominsky, Noah Cominsky, Maria Tate, and Carmen Tate and great-grandchildren Jordan Gatesy, Cameron Gatesy, and Matthew Herrera.

    Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a funeral will be held in Syracuse at a date to be determined. Memorial contributions may be made to a local food bank.

    Member Robert Edwards published an essay on expanding architectural history titled "The New Narrative: Will black history finally get to sit in the front of the bus?" in the New York Beacon newspaper in August.  Below is an excerpt:

    By Robert Louis Brandon Edwards 

    Is it really a new narrative or are some folks just now realizing that a part of history has been excluded from lectures, textbooks, conversations at the dinner table, and at museums and historical sites all across America? I ask you— what do you about the history of slavery? What do you know about the history of segregation? Think about how and why you know what you know. I know it is incredibly annoying to some, to read an essay with questions but this is a time for reflection and to provoke thought— to maybe ruffle a few feathers even. So if you suffer from a bad case of fragility please turn the page, and the next, and maybe even the page after that because this may take a while.

    As an architectural historian I am trained to see a structure and a space and think about when it was designed, its architectural features, who designed it, and for whom; as an architect, I am trained to imagine and reimagine structures and spaces and to develop innovative design concepts; but as a black man, I am trained to question if some of these structures, spaces, and even landscapes are designed for me and how. How does a black body experience the built environment or maneuver through different landscapes? There is a certain level of “spatial consciousness” that I encompass and for me, the relationship between race and space is not theoretical. It is ingrained in the history of this country and cannot be fully understood from an article, podcast, documentary, or historical plaque or marker. It cannot be fully understood from a series of webinars or from the news of yet another police shooting of an unarmed black person. This is something that can only be fully understood with years of exposure, something that is felt and seen on a regular basis. It is something that I experienced first hand growing up in New York City during the 1990s. Not only would I get stopped and frisked in certain neighborhoods by Giuliani’s police department, but I encountered the invisible lines of segregation, inequality, and racism that were strategically placed throughout the city. I lived in Harlem, which at the time was a predominantly black community in Manhattan, but I attended schools in predominantly white communities, so I learned to maneuver through these different environments with a certain cultural dexterity.
