Happy Birthday Daniel Burnham!
Some things you might do to celebrate the birthday of architect Daniel Burnham, leader of the American City Beautiful movement and chief designer of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exhibition:
- Re-read Erik Larson’s Devil in the White City and think about who’ll play Burnham and H.H. Holmes in the upcoming theatrical version. (Edit: I thought it was going to be Leo?)
- Name as many other famous Swedenborgians as you can
- Learn more about American urbanism with a copy of The City issue of Lapham’s Quarterly
