The Illinois School of Architecture lost more than a loyal alumnus and admired emeritus faculty member with the passing of A. Richard (Dick) Williams on May 27, several months short of his 102nd birthday. We lost a singularly gifted friend who contributed immeasurably to the school’s growth and success across the span of eight decades. What we haven’t lost—and can never afford to lose—are fine memories of Dick’s contributions to the school, and to the advancement of the art of architecture.
