Frank Thayer: An Architect’s Story by Rose Moudry

The final lecture in the 2020-2021 Lunchbox Lecture series is a slideshow entitled “Frank Thayer: An Architect’s Story” by Rose Moudry. When considering topics for the 2020-2021 Lunchbox Lecture Series, Moudry decided to research Frank Thayer. Thayer designed the Dinehart Holt House and the State Bank of Slayton Building (now the Left Bank Café), but who was he, really? What was his life like? What other buildings did he design? What happened to him? All these questions and more will be covered in this month’s lecture!
