Louis Magaziner and Julian F. Abele, the first Jew and the first African American to graduate from the University of Pennsylvania's School of Architecture, forged a bond as students that endured for the rest of their lives. In this presentation, Magaziner's great-grandniece explores this unusual friendship between two prominent Philadelphia architects.
