A Critical Life: Ada Louise Huxtable
I am now researching a biography of the late and legendary Ada Louise Huxtable (1921–2013), the first full-time architecture critic in the United States. Huxtable worked at the New York Times from 1963 to 1982, winning the first Pulitzer Prize ever awarded for criticism and joining the Times editorial board in 1973. After writing independently in the 1980s and early ’90s, she served as architecture critic at the Wall Street Journal from 1997 until her death in 2013. The book will be published by W. W. Norton.
