American architect. He was a partner in the firm of Hentz, Adler, & Shutze, NYC, from 1926. His works included the English Chambers House (1930), the Hebrew Benevolent Congregation Temple (1931–2), the Whitehead Memorial Annex, Emory University (1945), and his masterpiece, the Citizens' and Southern National Bank (1929—with a stunning interior of Roman grandness), all in Atlanta, GA. Shutze was called ‘America's Greatest Living Classical Architect’ in 1977. His work deserves more attention than it has been given hitherto.
