About the Author

James D. Birchfield, curator of rare books at the University of Kentucky, is former president of the Warwick Foundation, which promotes the Clay Lancaster legacy through education, preservation, and facilitation of cross-cultural understanding.

Clay Lancaster, an architectural historian and native Kentuckian, was known for his work on nineteenth and twentieth-century American architecture. After earning bachelor's and master's degrees at the University of Kentucky, he did post-graduate work at Columbia University, New York University, and the Asia Institute, where he established himself as an outspoken advocate of historical preservation. Also a writer and teacher, Lancaster published several books on architecture and art in addition to lecturing across the country. Lancaster returned to Kentucky in 1978 to continue his work and remained there until his death in 2000.
