Jeanette Fields, for more than two decades the architecture columnist for Wednesday Journal, was interviewed recently by Matt Baron and VOP6 TV as she was one of 60 local seniors honored during Celebrating Seniors Week.
Now retired and living at Holley Court Terrace, Fields espoused the benefits are always being active and involved and charted a few of her major passions through the decades including Frank Lloyd Wright's place in Oak Park, helping establish the Ernest Hemingway Foundation in his hometown and working for racial integration in the South Shore neighborhood of Chicago.
Fields' Architectural Angles column was a regular feature in the Journal through the 1980s and 1990s. It has appeared less frequently in recent years.
