Ralph Adams Cram (1865-1942) stood at the top of the America architectural pyramid from the 1890s to the 1940s. The first architect to appear on the cover of Time Magazine Cram designed 100s of churches across the US as well as many colleges and other buildings and also was a founder of the Boston Arts & Crafts Society. His major style was various incarnations of the Gothic though he also worked in the Colonial, classical and Japanese idioms. A devoted Episcopalian he was a prolific author and founded several magazines focusing on churches wrote 25 books and hundreds of articles. His work shows a very important often ignored side of the Arts & Crafts in the United States.
