Harvey Ellis Grave, St. Agnes Cemetery, Syracuse, New York. The unmarked grave was marked by the Arts and Crafts Society of Central New York in 1997.
Harvey Ellis (1852-1904), architect, artist and craftsman, designed several buildings in Rochester, NY and St. Paul, MN. He was an illustrator for The Craftsman and a designer of furniture for Gustav Stickley. Harvey Ellis was born in Rochester, NY, on October 17, 1852, the oldest of four children of Dewitt and Eliza Haseltine Ellis. Even as a child, Ellis had an interest in the arts and the collection includes several of his early drawings. Believing that Harvey needed more discipline, his father arranged for him to enter West Point on July 1, 1871. His stay at the school was brief: he was discharged on January 12, 1872 for tardiness, personal untidiness and gross neglect in his French assignments. There is also some indication that Ellis's downfall was the result of a forbidden affaire d'amour with an actress. Soon after the expulsion from West Point, Ellis's father sent him to Europe. His marriage annulled, his future uncertain, and exiled in Europe, Ellis developed a passion for painting that he would pursue for the rest of his life. His time in Europe was not long, and in 1872 he returned to his family, now living in Albany, NY. Family relationships were soon strained and Ellis moved to New York in 1875 where he was employed by an engineering office and studied architecture under Arthur G. Gilman. Dissatisfied by this static position, Ellis left New York in 1877 for Albany where he met and grew to admire the architect Henry H. Richardson, whose Romanesque style inspired Ellis's later work. Ellis accompanied his family when they returned to Rochester in September, 1877. Shortly thereafter he and his brother Charles established the architectural office of H. & C.S. Ellis. The firm was quite successful and Harvey Ellis was able to spend his time designing while Charles Ellis attracted new clients. Many commercial and residential buildings were designed by the office, the most important commission being for the new Federal Building (now Rochester City Hall) built in the Romanesque style. In 1885 mounting friction between the Ellis Brothers prompted Harvey to move once again, first to Utica, NY then to St. Paul, MN. In 1886-87 he was employed as a drafsman by the St. Paul firms of J. Walter Stevens, Mould & McNichol, and Leroy S. Buffington. Buffington claimed to be the originator of the metal skeleton frame that made building tall structures feasible and he took out a patent on the process. His claim to be the inventor of the skyscraper was refuted, but using the designs created by Harvey Ellis, Buffington is credited with playing a pivotal role in refining the new method of construction. Ellis continued to design houses, churches, banks and public buildings (many never built) for Buffington and submit renderings to architectural offices in St. Paul, St. Louis, MO and other Midwestern, and perhaps Southwestern, cities. He returned to Rochester in 1894 and rejoined his brother's firm. At some point he was married and lived in a rooming house on Lake Avenue with his wife. The economic depression meant fewer architectural commissions, but Ellis found employment decorating interiors. Ellis's appreciation of the aesthetic principals of the Arts and Crafts movement is apparent in the designs he created during this period. He was a founding member and president of the Rochester Arts & Crafts Society, one of the earliest such organizations in the country. In 1894 he helped organize the Society's first exhibition, a display of Japanese prints and modern French posters. In 1903 Harvey Ellis made the arrangements to display in Rochester's Mechanics Institute an extensive exhibition of arts and crafts decorative arts. The display was organized by Gustav Stickley and first shown the previous year in Syracuse. Following the exhibition Harvey Ellis, now separated from his wife, moved to Syracuse at the invitation of Stickley to write for The Craftsman. Ellis published several articles that included his designs for arts and crafts homes and interiors. Ellis's use of curves and inlays brought a more elegant and lighter style to Stickley's "mission" furniture.

Hendrik Petrus Berlage is one of the most important renovators of Netherlands' architecture at the end of the 19th century. He is born in Amsterdam in 1856. After failing artschool he studies architecture at the Zurich Institute of Technology under Gottfried Semper from 1875 until 1878, after which he travels extensively through Europe. Back in Amsterdam in 1882 he starts working at the office of Theodorus Sanders. Together they design several buildings in neo-Renaissance style, including a first design for the Amsterdam commodities exchange. In 1884 they form a partnership. From 1889 Berlage is working on his own, and designs in the then fashionable style of Jugendstil. In that year he presents himself at the World Exhibition in Paris with the design for a mausoleum, a plea for eternal peace. A first hint at Berlage's utopian socialistic ideas. In a wave of political naivity he later even makes a design for a mausoleum for Soviet dictator Lenin. A more important consequence of his socialism is the idea of Community Art (Gemeenschapskunst); artists of various disciplines working together on art that serves the community. Several of Berlage's important designs were made in this spirit. Berlage is best known for his final design for the Amsterdam commodities exchange. The style in which this building is built becomes known as Rationalism. Important elements of this style are the honest use of materials (all used materials should be recognizable), clarity of construction (no unnecessary ornamentation) and craftmanship in the execution. Brick is the preferred material of use, although natural stone is used for parts that need accentuating. Walls are usually completely flat, with the sparse decorative elements flush with the walls. This building is considered to be the beginning of modern architecture in the Netherlands, and although representing only a phase in Berlage's career, it remains a major influences until well into the 1950's. Several protestant architects, like Tj. Kuipers, design churches in a style close to Berlage's style. The traditionalistic architects of the Delft School, especially A.J. Kropholler, continue this style long after Berlage has abandoned it, and develop it even further using Berlage's ideas. On the other hand the Amsterdam School in its first years is partially a reaction to Berlage's assumed conservatism, with an expressionistic style that definitely breaks the rules of honest use of materials and clarity of construction. A visit to the U.S.A. in 1911 has a great impact on Berlage's work. The work of Henry Hobson Richardson, Louis H. Sullivan, and especially Frank Lloyd Wright become important influences until the end of his career. Later in his career Berlage becomes more active in town planning. His plan for the enlargement of Amsterdam-South (1914-1915) is the most important project. Berlage also designed furniture, and even wrote several plays. Berlage died in Den Haag (The Hague) in 1934, to where he had moved his office in 1913.
