The Stumptown Stories series, geared to everyone who loves this city we live in, takes place most Tuesdays at Jack London bar (basement of the Rialto, SW 4th and Alder). Free to get in, but must be 21 or over – there’s a full bar!
This Tuesday, December 13, 2011, Philip Niles, professor of History Emeritus at Carleton College, in collaboration with the Architectural Heritage Center presents The Portland of A.E. Doyle.
Architect A.E. Doyle left his mark on Portland. The Benson Hotel, Civic Stadium, Meier and Frank, the Pacific Building—these structures and dozens more are reminders of Portland’s rapid growth in the early 20th century and, significantly, how architectural design during that period identified and legitimized institutions and the social structure of the growing city. Historian Phil Niles examines the stages of Doyle’s development as an architect, the evolution of his style, and how his career reflected—and furthered—Portland’s growth.
Doors open at 5pm for this free event (21 and over only). Presentation begins at 7:30pm.
