Scope and content
Professor Richards has been a popular speaker at conferences, symposia, lecture series, and in more public forums such as on radio and television. Many of his addresses and presentations are listed in his curriculum vitae under ‘Invited lectures’, ‘Conferences and symposia’, and ‘Radio and television’. In this series, these categories are intermingled and the addresses are filed chronologically. Not all of the addresses are present; some are filed in other series. And others have not been located. For example, there are no addresses for 1985 and only one (1992) between 1989 and 1995.
Professor Richards’ earliest listed television appearance was on CTV’s ‘University of the Air’ series (1982), in a five-part presentation on “Understanding architecture”. It is also his only television or radio presentation documented here. The series ends with an address by Robert Fulford at University College in 1991 on the impact of The death and life of great American cities 30 years after its publication.
