John David Myles is a scholar. An accomplished lawyer and judge, yes,
but here I mean a student of learning. That is my meaning of scholarship.
And John David Myles is student of architecture and an accomplished writer.
I count him as a friend.
So, here I sound his praises for all of the studies that he has published.
Books that you might not know of, but which might find interesting.
That is how books are discovered these days.
If you like what you see, drop him a note and inquire of them further.

John David Myles is an attorney, former Circuit Judge, and preservationist. He has an abiding interest in the history and historic architecture of Kentucky. He has written the notes for the Filson Historical Society’s annual homes tour for a quarter century and in the process visited and researched many of the homes designed by Nevin, Morgan, and their partners. After publishing two books which received awards from the Louisville Historical League and the Kentucky Historical Society and two for private clients, he felt the work of the firm needed to be honored with a separate publication. The result is Louisville Classics which documents the work of the firm over its 50 years of existence between 1920 and 1970, filling a void in the story of Louisville’s architectural history.
