Architecture symposium to honor Geddes, Dec. 6
Posted November 21, 2003; 01:06 p.m.
A symposium in honor of Robert Geddes, the first dean of the School of Architecture , is planned for Saturday, Dec. 6.
The event will run from 1 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Betts Auditorium at the School of Architecture, which is sponsoring the symposium.
Geddes, an architect and educator, became dean in 1965. Under his leadership over the next 17 years, the school emerged as a major center for the exchange of architectural ideas. The conference, which will bring together alumni, architects and educators, will celebrate Geddes' 80th birthday.
Robert Goheen, the president of Princeton from 1957 to 1972, will introduce a panel on the history of the school. Stan Allen, the School of Architecture's current dean, will moderate a second panel on the future of architectural education.
