August 1971
New Yorker;8/28/1971, Vol. 47 Issue 28, p23
The article features the effort of Mrs. Margot Gayle in helping organizations in the city of New York. An example of her struggle is when she tried to lead an arduous battle to save the Jefferson Market Courthouse from demolition. The courthouse no longer serves the function for which it had been built. Luckily, a branch of the public library was needed in the neighborhood, and the architect Giorgio Cavaglieri solved the problem of turning a palace of justice into a palace of literature.
