American architect. His late-C19 domestic architecture, especially in the Shingle and Stick styles, was significant, although he produced elegant designs in versions of Queen Anne and Colonial Revival. The Forbes House, Milton, MA (1876), is reckoned to be his finest building in the Stick style, while his earliest building in the Shingle style was the C. J. Morrill House, Bar Harbor, ME (1879). His Loring House, Pride's Crossing, MA (1881), was his most remarkable developed work in the Shingle style.
