1800–1874, American architect, b. Catskill, N.Y. Among the first to use cast iron in the construction of building facades, Bogardus was noted for his commercial building designs in New York City. Bogardus’s success with cast-iron exteriors led eventually to the adoption of steel-frame construction for entire buildings.
