Jessica Dorman, director of publications, marketing and student education at The Historic New Orleans Collection, will present a lecture titled “Henry Howard, Louisiana’s Architect” at 3 p.m. Monday, April 9, in the McNeese State University SEED Center to close the 2018 spring Sage Series.
Dorman’s lecture – based on the book by the same title published by The Historic New Orleans Collection – will focus on Henry Howard, an Irish-born architect who designed over 280 buildings in Louisiana, including several plantations and the famous Carrollton Court House in New Orleans. Howard was known for his unorthodox style, which blended American and European trends, and is known as one of New Orleans’ most influential architects.
Dorman earned her doctorate in the history of American civilization from Harvard University. On staff at the Historic New Orleans Collection since 2004, Dorman has edited numerous award-winning books and has served as curator for several exhibits. She was also associate editor of the Tennessee Williams Annual Review for nine years.
