Part of our Seven Lectures at Seven Gables Series

Dr. Timothy Orwig will present the findings of his doctoral dissertation about the life and times of noted Colonial Revival architect, Joseph Everett Chandler. Chandler was hired by Caroline Emmerton after her purchase of The House of the Seven Gables in 1908 and spent a portion of his career devoted to the restoration of one of the oldest timber-framed mansions in America.

Dr. Timothy Orwig teaches courses in art and architectural history at Boston College and Northeastern University. He earned an M.A. in Historic Preservation Studies and a Ph.D. in American and New England Studies at Boston University; he also holds an M.A. in English Language and Literature from the University of Arkansas. Mr. Orwig is a consultant to state and local governments in historic preservation documentation and cultural resources management. He has published several articles in Historic New England magazine, and his recent books include Cape Cod Canal (2013) and Remembering Boston (2010). Before relocating to Massachusetts, he received his B.A. from Morningside College and taught there as Director of the Learning Center and Assistant Dean of the College.
