McKim, Mead & White
Amongst the most influential exponents of the Beaux Arts style of architecture in America, the firm of McKim, Mead & White flourished between 1879 and 1912, becoming a model for the modern architectural practice, if finally having to adapt to changing architectural style, with the rise of Modernism.

Stanford White (1853-1906), the most famous and youngest of the partners, eventually became the partner in charge of most residential commissions. Like the younger Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959), White often designed the furniture for his houses. Also, like Wright, White led a colourful personal life, which ended when he was shot to death by the affronted husband of one of his lovers.
