The idea for the museum arose in part from the controversy surrounding the Nazi march on Skokie in 1978, with the Village of Skokie obtaining an injunction against the march and the ACLU defending the Nazis' right of free speech. Tigerman's architecture provocatively transforms non-historical 20th Century styles in favor of argument, activism and higher ideals. Memory and Mission: A Talk with Stanley Tigerman '60, M.Arch. '62  promises to be an exciting afternoon of conversation and fellowship. The number of reservations is limited; timely reservation is advised.
