Residential architect who marketed his domestic designs through mail-order catalogs; dominated the late Victorian era within the United States. His designs peppered the entire country–all 50 states–and could also be seen in Japan and the Philippines.

He was a mostly self-taught architect who co- founded a contracting and building firm with his brother. His business took off with the publication of a nationwide catalogue offering 59 different building designs. His business eventually employed more than 50 people who handled orders from the U.S. and overseas.
