Ralls Melotte will discuss his work involving the restoration of the world-class Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass collection in the Dana Thomas House in Springfield, Illinois.

About the presenter — After graduating from the University of Illinois, with a Bachelor of Architecture, Melotte founded an architectural office and stained glass studio with business partner Richard Morse. They built the business into a professional collaboration of architects, scientists, artists, craftsmen, and social entrepreneurs serving the region for more than 50 years with new construction, historic preservation, environmental hazard remediation, major stained glass art collections, and legislative development that became foundational to present-day regulations.

Retiring in 2019. Melotte moved home to Wisconsin to enjoy the cool breezes off Lake Michigan and pursue his life-long love of writing. An avid historical fiction and mystery reader, he recently published a novel, Cat’s Café, the first book in the Eagle Rock Trilogy. It closely follows the course of the actual events that led to the creation of Idaho Falls.
