Based on the archives of the Avery Architectural Library of Columbia University and the New York Historical Society, this refreshing portrait of one of America’s most prominent architects is at the same time a document of the sweeping social and cultural changes taking place in the country at the turn of the twentieth century. A biography of Stanford White and more, the book recovers a neglected yet significant part of White’s career — a career that not only set the bar for twentieth-century architecture but also defined the newly emerging profession of interior design.
