KENDALL, EDWARD H.
F.A.I.A. - An architect, died at his home in New York on March 10, 1901. He was born in Boston, July 30, 1842. He studied in Paris and then in Boston in the office of the architect Gridley J. F. Bryant. Later Mr. Kendall moved to New York and erected many important buildings. His chief works are perhaps the first plans of the Equitable Building, the German Savings Bank, the Field Building, No. 1 Broadway, two Navarro houses, and the Washington Bridge, of which he was consulting architect. That the Tarsney law was enacted by Congress was due largely to his persistence while president of the American Institute of Architects. He became a member of the American Institute of Architects in 1868 and was its president in 1892 and 1893 as well president of the New York Chapter from 1884 to 1888. He also served as president of the World's Convention of Architects held during the Columbian Exposition at Chicago in 1893.
