From Peter Harrison to Pietro Belluschi, Newport’s architects and builders have left a remarkable legacy of great-and often groundbreaking-design. Happily, a strong local commitment to preservation (such as that demonstrated by Salve Regina University) has kept much of this legacy intact-and now Professor James Yarnall has produced a book that celebrates this historic city’s treasures with exemplary scholarship and clarity. These pages should inspire everyone who cares about America’s architectural heritage to schedule a trip to Newport right away.
--Richard Moe, President, National Trust for Historic Preservation
Makes a significant contribution, not only to the history of architecture in Newport, but also to the history of architecture in the United States . . . descriptive enough to satisfy the architectural scholar, while at the same time explanatory enough to allow the casual reader to appreciate the field.
--M. Hunter Ulf, Vice President, New England Chapter, American Institute of Architects
