Letter to the editor: Little burg hosts a lot of talent
My guilty little pleasure is the magazine Architectural Record, perhaps the most important chronicle of building today. When I got to p.16 of the February edition I yelped out loud, for there was a glowing 3-page feature on Middlebury architect John McLeod — and it’s the second time the magazine has featured his firm. Congrats, John. What an amazing accomplishment.
These days I’m constantly reminded of the word-class talent around here — writers, musicians, photographers, artists. (I’ll throw Clint Bierman into that group. The world will catch up to him any day now.) There’s a lot of big talent in this little burg.
