TOMORROW: Great Grandson of McKim, Mead and White Architect to Speak at Burke

Published June 2, 2015

One hundred years ago, famed architecture firm McKim, Mead and White designed Burke's beautiful campus. On Wednesday, June 3, Samuel White, the great grandson of the firm's Stanford White, will visit Burke's campus for a riveting lecture, as part of Burke’s Legacy Lobby Lecture series.

Titled, “A Conversation with Samuel White: The Vision of McKim, Mead and White and the Classical Ideal,” the lecture will discuss the firm and its impact on New York architecture. The group is responsible for many notable landmarks, including the original New York Penn Station, the Washington Park arch, Prospect Park, Harvard Business School and, of course, Burke Rehabilitation Center.  

Join us tomorrow in the Harris Parlor of Wood Pavilion (building number 7) on Burke’s main campus in White Plains from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for this exclusive conversation. Space is limited, so please register by emailing Julia Moran at or visiting

This lecture is in conjunction with Burke’s ongoing centennial celebration. For more information, visit
