Ada Louise Huxtable (née Landman) was born on March 14, 1921, and grew up in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. She was The New York Times’s first architecture critic, the first such post at any American daily newspaper. Huxtable held the position from 1963 until 1982, along the way picking up the first Pulitzer Prize for criticism and one of the inaugural MacArthur “genius” grants. She was also architecture critic for the Wall Street Journal from 1997 until her death earlier this year.
