Bertram Goodhue

(b. Pomfret, Connecticut 1869; d. New York, N.Y. 1924)

Bertram Goodhue was born in Pomfret, Connecticut in 1869. He began his architectural career at the age of fifteen in the New York office of Renwick, Aspinwall and Russell. By 1898 he had established a partnership with Cram, Goodhue and Ferguson. In the same period he collaborated with Ralph Cram on a magazine of criticism entitled The Knight Errant..

Over the course of his career, Goodhue designed numerous churches, houses and public buildings, gradually moving away from the dense Gothic style he adapted earlier in his career towards a lighter Romanesque idiom. Towards the end of his career, Goodhue developed an personal contemporary style, but his search for an innovative style for his time was more successful in terms of generated ideas rather than through his buildings.
