Abstract:

"Clarence W. ("Cap") Wigington was a man of firsts - the first registered African American architect in Minnesota and the first African American municipal architect in the nation. The public buildings and ice palaces that he designed for the city of St. Paul are a continuing legacy, helping to define the city's character. And his achievements, both as an architect and as a leader in the city's black community, are all the more significant given the limitations of the times in which he lived." "Cap Wigington: An Architectural Legacy in Ice and Stone provides a picture of a man, his buildings, and his times."--Jacket.
