Event description: 
Join Susan Godshall and Jack Tripp for a presentation of their new book published by the New Haven Preservation Trust. This unique take on New Haven focuses on the often unknown men — and one woman — who built houses, commercial and academic buildings, monuments and other historic structures. 
Susan Godshall has worked at four major New Haven institutions including City Hall and Yale University. Most recently, she retired as Senior Vice President of the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce where she worked on economic development, state and local government affairs, and transportation investment. Susan holds degrees from Yale Law School and Yale School of Architecture. She is a long-time board member of the New Haven Preservation Trust. 
Jack Tripp is a senior at Yale College from Westport, Massachusetts. His studies focus on English and political science, concentrating on the Romantic poets and political philosophy. Besides research for the Preservation Trust’s Builder Book, he has also spent time writing for the Yale Daily News and The New Journal, serving on the executive board of the Yale Dramatic Association, and working as a President’s Public Service Fellow at the Arts Council of Greater New Haven.
