NEH grant for podcasts celebrating women in architecture
Ray Kaiser Eames (1912-1988).



WASHINGTON, DC.- The Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation has received a significant grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for their work on a major podcast series, called New Angle: Voice, dedicated to preserving and sharing the incredible lives of the most influential women in the history of architecture and design.

This series, which has been awarded a $100,000 NEH grant, offers a valuable example of how digital media plays an essential role in the preservation of women’s histories.

The NEH announced about $31.5 million in grants last week for 226 humanities projects from across the United States, supporting a wide range of projects from education and scholarly pursuits to the preservation of archives and digital media.

The outright award for audio documentary series New Angle: Voice – Pioneering Women of American Architecture, cites the project director Cynthia Phifer Kracauer, AIA, executive director of the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation (BWAF). In the announcement, NEH describes the podcast as “a multiplatform project about the history of women's contributions to American architecture.” It was awarded under the grant category of the Division of Media Projects Production.

New Angle:Voice:

Hosted by Kracauer and produced by Brandi Howell, a name behind several award-winning shows, the first season of New Angle: Voice debuted last year and reveals intimate details and challenges faced by five legendary names in architecture: Julia Morgan, Natalie de Blois, Helen Fong, Florence Knoll and Norma Sklarek. The listening audience jumped from a few thousand to over 40,000, and growing, during the spring of this year.

The NEH grant comes as the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation prepares to release the second season of New Angle:Voice. The second season’s premiere episode, to be released in early October, introduces the inspiring story of modernist industrial designer Ray Eames (1912–1988). Subsequent episodes will present the lives of Boston’s legendary TAC founders Jean Bodman Fletcher and Sarah Pillsbury Harkness; the African-American architect and hidden talent Amaza Lee Meredith; inventor and suffragist Anna Wagner Keichline; and the first-ever winner of a Pulitzer Prize for architecture criticism, Ada Louise Huxtable.
