Summary "This book examines the life and works of a major architect whose buildings today surpass him in recognition. In the early twentieth century - a time when modernism was favored over classicism, and architectural iconoclasm over tradition - the commissions of Ralph Adams Cram were inspired by elegant practicality, mystical philosophies, and a keen sense of history and place. Among them were such religious masterpieces as St. John the Divine in New York City, the chapel at West Point, and campus architecture at Princeton."--BOOK JACKET
