In connection with our exhibition on Lafayette Park, we’ll feature a historic document each week. Today’s newsletter front page, along with other bits of information we will present through July, are courtesy of Betty Brown and the publication, "Thanks for the View, Mr. Mies," 2012. If you would like to share ephemera from Lafayette Park, send us a copy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
