BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Architect. Milton Glass worked on the planned community of Kitimat, British Columbia. Commissioned by Alcan (Aluminum Company of Canada), it was to be British Columbia's first planned community: "Kitimat would be designed for the worker and his family. The fulfillment of people's needs as the focus of a town plan was considered revolutionary. Famed American architect and town planner Clarence S. Stein, and town planners Mayer & Whittlesey of New York fulfilled Alcan's goals. A green space model was chosen separating pedestrian and vehicular traffic and having home, store, and community building face peaceful open spaces, removed from intrusion and hazard by the automobile."
