WHEN: 6:30 p.m. • Tuesday, July 24

WHERE: Williams Research Center, 410 Chartres St.

WHY: Samuel Wilson Jr. (1911-1993), noted preservationist, architect and architectural historian, was known as the Dean of Architectural Preservation in New Orleans. Closing out a year-long series of events celebrating what would have been his 100th birthday, Florence M. Jumonville will discuss his contributions to the preservation of the French Quarter.

Along with his business partner, Richard Koch, Wilson worked to restore hundreds of notable Louisiana structures, including the Cabildo, Pontalba Buildings, Ursuline Convent, Gallier House and San Francisco Plantation. He also helped establish many of the city's preservationist societies, including the Louisiana Landmarks Society, Preservation Resource Center, Friends of the Cabildo and Save Our Cemeteries.

Admission to the lecture is free. Call (504) 523-4662 or email wrc@hnoc.org to reserve seats or for more information. This event is presented in conjunction with AIA New Orleans, the Louisiana Landmarks Society, WLAE-TV and the Tulane School of Architecture.

Founded in 1966, The Historic New Orleans Collection is a museum, research center and publisher dedicated to the study and preservation of the history and culture of New Orleans and the Gulf South.
