Howard Dearstyne, (1903-1979) was an architect and writer. He was the only American graduate of the Bauhaus, and was immensely affected by its teachings and concepts, especially those of its last master, Mies van der Rohe. Dearstyne published on a wide array of subjects, including the architecture of colonial Virginia--especially Williamsburg--modern art, architectural design and city planning, design in nature, art photography and the Bauhaus.
