Interview Summary

Harry L. Siler (South Africa, 2001-2003; Education), in the second of two interviews, describes growing up in Williamsburg, Kentucky and graduating from the first class in 1964 of the School of Architecture at the University of Kentucky. He discusses his career as an architect working with Eero Saarinen, helping design such museums as the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial under the St. Louis Arch and the Orientation Center at Gettysburg, and a second career as an architecture professor at Washington Tech and then Howard University in Washington DC before retiring. Siler talks about joining the Peace Corps and returning to his hometown and the house he grew up in. He is reflective about architecture, about his own life, and about his Peace Corps experience in South Africa and its impact on the way he views the world and his new desire to write.
