Synopsis: Robert R. Taylor and Tuskegee interweaves the life of the first academically trained African American architect with his life's work - the campus of Booker T. Washington's Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute. In this richly illustrated architectural history, the author shows how a black youth born in North Carolina shortly after the Civil War earned a professional architecture degree at MIT and how he then used his design and administrative skills to further Booker T. Washington's agenda of community solidarity and - in defiance of the then-expanding Jim Crow policies - the public expression of racial pride and progress. The book also considers such issues as architectural education for African Americans at the turn of the 20th century, the white donors who funded Tuskegee's buildings, other Tuskegee architects, and Taylor's buildings elsewhere. Individual narratives of Taylor's Tuskegee buildings conclude the volume.

About the Author: Ellen Weiss is the author of North Kingston, Rhode Island and City in the Woods. Her preoccupation with communities built on utopian impulses fuels her current work on Booker T. Washington's Tuskegee Institute and its principal designer, Robert R. Taylor. Weiss studied at Oberlin College, the University of California at Berkeley, and the University of Illinois. She has taught architectural and planning history at many universities and now teaches at the School of Architecture at Tulane. She has served on the boards of the Society of Architectural Historians, the Vernacular Architecture Forum, and the Southeast Society of Architectural Historians. Weiss lives in New Orleans, Louisiana.
