Thomas Rogers Kimball, FAIA, is perhaps the most unsung contributor to the creation of Nebraska’s National Landmark State Capitol. Capitol Administrator, Robert C. Ripley, FAIA, will present a program highlighting Kimball’s impact on the design of the Nebraska State Capitol.
Kimball created the rules governing the design competition and advised the Nebraska Capitol Commission until the Capitol’s completion in 1932. His work enabled Nebraskans to achieve a modern architectural wonder. Ripley will also highlight other aspects of Kimball’s long architectural career in Nebraska and the nation.
