About the Author

Greg Harm was born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, and lived there until he graduated from college at age thirty-eight and moved to Austin, Texas. Harm holds a Bachelor's in Political Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a Master's in Legal Studies and Administration from Texas State University.

He has been a lifelong lover of art, music, history, and politics. He lives and works in Austin, Texas.

He has finished writing and illustrating his second book, Passing Torches: Lee Lawrie's Art Deco Sculpture at the Los Angeles Public Library, presently in production. The Library was created by the same crew who worked on the Nebraska State Capitol: designed by Architect Goodhue and adorned with Lawrie's mystical sculpture, as programmed by Hartley Burr Alexander. Alexander designed it to be a temple of learning and knowledge.

Harm has also begun working on his third book, Oblivion: The Forgotten Sculptural Legacy of America's Machine Age Michelangelo, which delves further into the art and life of Lee Lawrie across America. The book will be an encyclopedia, sharing nearly two decades of study on America's most obscure and never recognized genius.

An amazing book with THE best blend of photos with information I have ever seen in a book about a building! It is packed with so much information and so many detailed and historical pictures it is great fun to read and hard to believe one person put it all together between two covers. This book reveals that the Nebraska Capitol is truly a 'national treasure' that everyone should experience more than once, especially Nebraskans with access to it every day except Thanksgiving (& the day after), Christmas and New Year's. On my grandson's first visit there, he asked me "is this a "palace"? My answer was "yes... it certainly is". He'll have his own copy of this book.
