Here is a preview…..
Born in 1876 Dougherty was the first Georgian to graduate from the acclaimed Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. While not as well known as some of his peers, Dougherty was better trained and educated than any architect in Georgia at the time. Dougherty practiced in Atlanta until 1916 when he moved to Nashville. He designed significant residences and churches throughout the Southeast. Additionally, he designed both the Druid Hills Golf Club in Atlanta and the Belle Meade Country Club in Nashville. A second lecture will be given in Nashville later this spring at Belle Meade that will be hosted by the Tennessee Chapter of the ICAA.www.classicist-se.org.
