Biographical Note

William Adams Delano (1874-1960) was born in New York, was a graduate of the Lawrenceville School and Yale University, and studied architecture at Columbia University and at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. After working in the New York firm of Carrere & Hastings, he formed a design firm with Chester Holmes Aldrich (1871-1940) in 1903

Further information on Delano and his firm can be found in Peter Pennoyer and Anne Walker, The Architecture of Delano & Aldrich (New York and London: W. W. Norton & Co., 2003). The book includes a chronology of the architects' life and design projects.
