    Ogden Codman, Jr., attained professional prominence in Gilded Age society as a co-author with Edith Wharton of the best-selling design manual The Decoration of Houses. Drawing upon classical influences from both sides of the Atlantic, he designed buildings and interiors for clients including Vanderbilts and Rockefellers. An architectural historian, he also documented historic structures in America and France, a legacy that continues to aid scholars today. Discover the life and oeuvre of this transatlantic tastemaker during a talk featuring quotes and images from Historic New England's archives, followed by a tour highlighting Codman's 1890s redecoration of his family home, the Codman Estate.
