John Mead Howells


John Mead Howells

John Mead Howells (August 14, 1868 – September 22, 1959) was an American architect. Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts as the son of author William Dean Howells, he studied architecture at Harvard and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he met his future partners, I. N. Phelps Stokes and Raymond Hood. In 1897 Howells founded, with the former, Howells & Stokes, with which he helped design St. Paul's Chapel at Columbia University. The two went their separate ways, however, after 1913, with Howells choosing to pursue commercial projects and eventually partnering with Raymond Hood, with whom Howells designed the Beekman Tower and the Daily News Building in New York City as well as the Tribune Tower in Chicago.
