Originally, Ricker Notes was a periodical for the School of Architecture edited and published by students, who included feature articles, news, poetry, drawings, and book reviews. The title “Ricker” refers to Nathan Clifford Ricker, the first graduate of an architecture program in the United States (in March of 1873).
In 2018, Ricker Notes returned in the form of Ricker Report. The goal of the new Ricker Report is to connect architecture, engineering, and other disciplines while featuring students, alumni, and other talented professionals.
Ricker Report is dedicated to the memory of Emeritus Professor James Warfield and Architecture Ricker Librarian Chris Quinn. Their passion and loyalty to the School of Architecture, Ricker Library, and the University of Illinois continues to inspire students each day.
