Years of Flourishing Lead to a Triumphant Return

Left to right are Professor Amelia Carr, J. Arvid Klein, Class of 1954, and his wife Cynthia Crimmins. Klein was the alumnus featured in the 2006 faculty and alumni exhibition.

The building in the photo mural behind them is the Williamsburg Community Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., one of the projects designed by J. Arvid Klein’s New York City-based architectural firm Pasanella + Klein Stolzman + Berg of which Klein is a founding Principal. The building received the “Best Public Building in New York City” 2005 award from the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

During Klein’s visit to campus, he met informally with Allegheny students and faculty to discuss his distinguished career in architecture.
