Norma Merrick Sklarek

Norma was the first in many things. She was the first african-american woman to receive the architect license and to become a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

When she graduated, no architectural firm wanted to hire her, taking Norma to work at the Department of Public Utilities of New York. It was only possible to exercise her profession four years later, when she got a steady job in an architecture office. After leaving the firm, she opened her own office together with two other female architects, "Siegel, Sklarek, Diamond." She lived until 2012.
