About Lawrence Kreisman

Lawrence Kreisman credits his love of architecture and design to a visit he made with his parents to the Metropolitan Opera House in New York when he was eight years old. New York continued to shape his interest in buildings and design, and after moving to Washington state and receiving his master's degree in architecture, he found a job in the Office of Urban Conservation which set him on the preservation path for life. In successive years, Kreisman worked as a consultant, tour guide, researcher, and author, and served as architectural historian on the Seattle Landmarks Preservation Board from 1995 to 2003. Since 1997, Kreisman has been the program director of Historic Seattle - a membership organization that for 32 years has preserved and restored buildings and encouraged people to get involved in preservation through its advocacy efforts. He is known for bringing public attention to the Northwest's architectural heritage and its preservation through courses, tours, exhibits, lectures, articles and books, and program development. Kreisman's publications include: Apartments by Anhalt, The Stimson Legacy: Architecture in the Urban West, and Made to Last: Historic Preservation in Seattle and King County, as well as hundreds of design features in the Seattle Times Pacific Northwest Magazine. Kreisman holds master's degrees in architecture from the University of Washington, and in English literature from the University of Chicago. His lectures and tours on late nineteenth and early twentieth century design and architecture take place throughout the Pacific Northwest. Glenn Mason, co-owner of Cultural Images, a museum and historical society consulting firm, is an avid enthusiast of the Arts and Crafts movement. While director of the Lane County Museum in Eugene, Oregon, and the Cheney Cowles Museum (now Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture) in Spokane, Washington, he mounted several Arts and Crafts exhibits, researched and spoke on the subject, and helped secure Arts and Crafts collections of regional and national significance.
