The Builder Book: Carpenters, Masons and Contractors in Historic New Haven
Thursday, January 26, 6:00 p.m.
Join Susan Godshall and Jack Tripp for a presentation of their new book published by the New Haven Preservation Trust. This unique take on New Haven focuses on the often unknown men — and one woman — who built houses, commercial and academic buildings, monuments and other historic structures.
Susan Godshall has worked at four major New Haven institutions including City Hall and Yale University. Most recently, she retired as Senior Vice President of the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce where she worked on economic development, state and local government affairs, and transportation investment. Susan holds degrees from Yale Law School and Yale School of Architecture. She is a long-time board member of the New Haven Preservation Trust.
Jack Tripp is a senior at Yale College from Westport, Massachusetts. His studies focus on English and political science, concentrating on the Romantic poets and political philosophy. Besides research for the Preservation Trust’s Builder Book, he has also spent time writing for the Yale Daily News and The New Journal, serving on the executive board of the Yale Dramatic Association, and working as a President’s Public Service Fellow at the Arts Council of Greater New Haven.

Aging can be a difficult process. As the years go on, we all age in different ways. While it’s natural to develop wrinkles and fine lines, sometimes they become more than a cosmetic issue. For many people, excess skin around the eyes can cause visual limitations as well as self-consciousness about their appearance. If you’re looking for an effective way to address this problem, blepharoplasty may be right for you!
