Program Title:
School of hard knocks or, mallets with forethought
PRA Archive #: 

Jan Albert hosts his program about the resumed construction (after a 37-year of hiatus) of the Cathedral of St. John the Devine in Manhattan, NY. Local men and women are being trained in the ancient art of stone masonry, and are well into the job of hand shaping the thousands of stones it will take to complete the huge Gothic structure started in 1892. The program emphasizes the stone masonry apprenticeships for women.
