Author(s):
Abstract:
Julian Abele is considered the first major African American architect in the country. During his forty-four-year career he designed 650 buildings, among them the stately mansion of James B. Duke in New York City in 1912. So impressed was Duke that when it came time to pick the architect to design Duke University, he chose Abele. Jackson discusses Abele's life and his creations at the Duke campus.
