Inventors of the modern highway and the most prolific park builders of the 20th century, Gilmore D. Clarke (class of 1913) and Michael Rapuano (class of 1927) were the creative giants who enabled New York masterbuilder Robert Moses to transform Gotham into America's first metropolis of the motor age. Thomas Campanella, associate professor of City and Regional Planning, tells the story of Clarke and Rapuano as part of Cornell's sesquicentennial celebration, April 24-27, 2015.
