Cindy Catanzaro has been researching Sears Houses since 2006, after discovering she was living in one! As a volunteer for The Westcott Center for Architecture & Design, she leads walking tours and gives presentations to local interest groups. She is a leading contributor to the National Database for Sears Catalog Homes, which currently lists addresses of more than 1300 Sears Houses across Ohio.
In 2013, she was instrumental in locating a copy of a thesis written by Beatrice Lask that listed more than 500 Sears Homes in the Cincinnati area. The thesis, prepared by Mrs. Lask in the early 1990’s, was originally on file at the University of Cincinnati DAAP Library, but had gone missing. It has now been scanned, is back on file at the Library, and is available to the public.
Cindy loves to share information about this little piece of America’s architectural history.
