Julian Abele (1881-1950), the first African American to graduate from the University of Pennsylvania's School of Architecture, and Louis Magaziner (1878-1956), the first Jew to graduate from the same school, forged a bond as students that endured for the rest of their lives. Their affection for Penn endured as well. This illustrated presentation by Magaziner's great-grandniece, Amy Cohen, explores the unusual friendship between these two prominent Philadelphia architects.

Presented by the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation, The History of Art Department, and The Architectural Archives.
