Award-winning architect Robert Madison was the first African-American to graduate from Case Western's School of Architecture, as well as the first to gain a degree in architecture in Ohio. His firm, Robert P. Madison International, has been both the lead and associate architects for the design of major projects including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Great Lakes Science Center, and Cleveland Museum of Art. His memoir, Designing Victory, co-written with journalist and author Carlo Wolff, tells the story of his hard-fought struggle to overcome racism and excel in his chosen field.
