The Architect and His Buildings

Noted American architect Ralph Adams Cram (1863-1942), who was born in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire, designed the Hunt Memorial Library Building. In New Hampshire, he designed the Chapel for Phillips Exeter and renovated the Chapel of St. Peter and St. Paul at St. Paul's School in Concord, New Hampshire. His other designs include St. John the Divine in New York City, the Chapel at West Point, as well as many other collegiate and ecclesiastic buildings. Perhaps his greatest impact was upon the campus of Princeton University, where he served as their first Consulting Architect from 1907 to 1929 and oversaw the design and construction of 25 buildings.
