Richard Seth Hayden’60, managing partner of Swanke, Hayden and Connell Architects of New York City, will present “Poverty is the friend of history” at the inaugural Francis E. Hares Preservation Lecture series sponsored by Syracuse University’s School of Architecture. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 28 in the Sue Ann Genet Auditorium, Room 108 of Slocum Hall. Hayden, who graduated from the School of Architecture in 1960, is a member of the University’s Board of Trustees and a member of the School of Architecture Advisory Board. An expert in historic preservation, Hayden’s projects include restoration of the Statute of Liberty, St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City, the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Newark, N.J., the U.S. Capitol and Senate Chambers in Washington, D.C., and the West Virginia State Capitol Dome in Charleston. Hayden is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects, the New York Historical Society, the Architectural League of New York and the Illuminating Engineering Society of New York. The Francis E. Hares Preservation Lecture series was established in honor of Hares ’38, who died in 1998. Hares was an influential member of the Central New York preservation community, having served as a founding member of the Preservation Association of Central New York, a member of the board, vice chair and chair of the Syracuse Landmark Preservation Board, and a member of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. He was a principal in the firm of Hueber, Hares and Glavin until his retirement. After his death, members of the Class of 1938 worked to create an endowment in his honor, and in collaboration with local preservationists, the Francis E. Hares Preservation Lecture Series fund was begun. For information about contributing to the fund, contact Katryn Hansen, assistant dean in the School of Architecture, at 443-2256.
