Catherine Bishir was recently honored in an article titled “Changing Courses,” in Carolina Journal. Author J. Michael Welton delivers an accessible narrative of Catherine’s professional life and underscores how it has evolved from fairly modest beginnings. So it’s very encouraging for those of us who are still making our way toward one or even many professional goals. Welton’s conclusion is that Catherine Bishir has become far more than North Carolina’s most influential architectural historian. With “unstinting facts and impeccable prose," Catherine has actually “altered the arc of [the state’s] cultural heritage.” How’s that for a worthy life’s work?
