McKim, Mead & White


McKim, Mead & White


McKim, Mean & White was an American architectural firm formed in 1879 by Charles Follen McKim (1847-1909), William Rutherford Mead (1846-1928), and Stanford White (1853-1906). By the 1880's they were one of the leading proponents of classical revival as an expression of national architectural identity. Mead remained technically a part of the firm until his official retirement in 1919 (ULAN record).
