GREENWICH, Conn. In honor of Womens History Month, genealogist Sylvia Hasenkopf will discuss the work of the female architect who designed the Innis Arden Cottage for J. Kennedy Tod at Greenwich Point.
Katherine C. Budd (1860-1951) was one of the first women to successfully practice architecture in an era when men dominated the field. When William Appleton Potter, Budds teacher and architect of the J. Kenney Tod mansion, could not take on the commission for the cottage, he recommended Budd.
She went on to design hundreds of residential and commercial structures throughout the United States.
This program begins at 2 p.m. March 4 and is co-sponsored by the Greenwich Historical Society and the Greenwich Point Conservancy . Admission is free, but reservations are required. Call 203-869-6899, Ext. 10.
