(p.3) Introduction
The Architecture of William Nichols

The introductory chapter is an overview of William Nichols the man and William Nichols the architect. It details how the author became intimately familiar with Nichols’s work while serving as the historic architect for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Kapp explores this simple question: Why is a man who had designed and built so many significant pieces of architecture throughout the South a virtual unknown, even though he is an emerging subject among architectural historians? I then provide the reader with a simple overview of the book and argue why it is important to preserve his few surviving buildings.
