MEDIA REVIEWS
"One of the highlights of the book is a short biography by Russell Clement, head of the art collection at the Netsch-designed Northwestern University Library. It's lucidly written and rich with telling details and anecdotes, like the story of how, in 1947, Netsch (just hired by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill) drove to the SOM-designed town of Oak Ridge, Tennessee 'in his Raymond Loewy-designed yellow Studebaker convertible, to which he had attached a propeller on the front as a joke.'" --Blair Kamin
