​Adolf Cluss, a German immigrant, settled in Washington, D.C. in 1849 and became the previer architect in washington from 1862 to 1888. Intrigued by Cluss's revolutionary background and his relationship with Karl Marx, I proposed and organized an international consortium and directed the Washington team. In 2005-2006, the consortium produced two exhibitions, books, a website, a CD, and many public programs. 

I have written articles and presented public programs about Adolf Cluss's life and architectural career.  I am now writing the first full-length biography of Adolf Cluss.
