Exploring the Gates of Harvard with Blair Kamin, NF ’13
In a new interview with Harvard Magazine
, Pulitzer-Prize winning author and Chicago Tribune
architecture critic Blair Kamin explains what drew him to research the 25 wrought-iron gates of Harvard. His interest in the subject as a 2013 Nieman fellow turned into a January-term class for undergraduates and ultimately, a new Nieman e-book, “The Gates of Harvard Yard: The Complete Story, in Words and Pictures, of a Great University’s Iconic Portals,” which is due out in August.
