FMS: Authors of A Force of Nature and Triumverate

 

An environmental advocacy group that grew into an international powerhouse. We'll talk with John H. Adams, founder of the Natural Resources Defense Council, whose inspiring memoir tells how the world's preeminent environmental agency got started. Plus, Mosette Broderick, renowned architectural and social historian, tells the story of the most influential architectural firm of its time. In her book, Triumvirate, Broderick weaves together the fascinating biographies of Charles McKim, William Mead, and Stanford White, and the history of the houses and buildings they designed.
