Distinguished Lecture Series presents Stephen Perkins and James F. Caughman
Addison Mizner (1872-1933) is recognized as one of America’s iconic society architects, who created splendid residences in Palm Beach in the 1920s for such families as Duke, Biddle, Vanderbilt, Phipps, and Wanamaker. Mizner really began his career in architecture at the age of thirty-eight, but he spent most of his early adult life living by his wits and was variously recognized as a humorist, bon vivant, bohemian, prospector, painter, writer, and prize fighter. Caughman and Perkins, of Washington, DC, will complement the current special exhibit of the Johnson History Museum with their presentation of Mizner’s colorful life.
