MUMFOR WILL TALK
ONRLIINPROGRAM
Lecturer is Author of Several Books
on Skyscraper Architecture in ,
Large Cities
OPPOSES RAPID GROWTH
Lewis Mumford, author of many
books on architecture, will speak on
"The Future of the City" at 4:15
o'clock this afternoon in Natural
Science auditorium. The speech is one
of a series being offered by the School
of Religion on the moral issues of
modern life.
Among some of Mr.- Mumford's
books are: "The Story of Utopias";
"Sticks and Stones," a criticism of
skyscraper architecture, and "The
Golden Age," his latest book. Mr.
Mumford is famous as a critic of the
development of modern cities. Sev-
eral of his works have been directed
against the neglect of aesthetic and
moral values in the growth of our
cities.
The title of the lecture was origin-
ally to be on "The Menace of the
City," but the subject was changed in
order to allow the speaker greater
scope. Mr. Mumford is regarded as
an outstanding member of the garden
movement. He has been influential
in the development of many small
towns. "Mr. Mumford has always
been an opponent of cities which
grow upward instead of outward,"
Professor A. E. Wood of the Sociol-
ogy department said in characterizing
the architect. "He dislikes the crowd-
ed metropolis and wishes to make the
country a nation of small cities."
Mr. Mumford will also speak to a
group of architects on Friday at the
College of Architecture.
