> About William Bell Dinsmoor: A professor at Columbia University and architect and professor at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Dinsmoor was invited in 1920 to lend his expertise to the design of the Nashville Parthenon, a full scale replica of the fifth century B.C. temple dedicated to Athena. The lecture explores the history of the building of the Nashville Parthenon and the evidence for Dinsmoor's participation in the project. In particular, the lecture traces the detailed information and measurements, achieved through years of examining the ancient temple, that Dinsmoor brought to the creation of the replica in Nashville. Also considered is the possibility that Dinsmoor's participation in the Nashville project reflexively affected his thinking about the ancient Parthenon.
