Vincent Scully, American art historian who was Sterling Professor (highest academic rank at Yale University, akin to the rank of university professor at other universities) Emeritus of the History of Art in Architecture at Yale University, and the author of several books and both producer and host of documentaries on the subject (August 21, 1920 - November 30, 2017) was born Vincent Joseph Scully Jr. in New Haven, Connecticut. Architect Philip Johnson once described Scully as "the most influential architectural teacher ever." His lectures at Yale were known to attract casual visitors and packed houses, and regularly received standing ovations. Scully was a fierce critic of the 1963 destruction of New York's original Pennsylvania Station, memorably writing of it that, "One entered the city like a god. One scuttles in now like a rat." Scully died on November 30, 2017 at his home in Lynchburg, Virginia, aged 97. The cause of death was complications of Parkinson's disease.
