University of Pennsylvania Library : Frank Furness by Edward R Bosley( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Furness's rationalized plan, expressed on the exterior as a bold design, was challenged for decades, and anti-Victorian sentiment threatened the edifice with demolition as late as the 1960s. Renewed appreciation has since come full circle, however, culminating in a dramatic interior restoration by the eminent Philadelphia practice, Venturi, Scott Brown and Associates. Frank Furness's academic monument thus stands today as a defining architectural landmark of Philadelphia

Frank Furness : architecture and the violent mind by Michael J Lewis( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first biography of the flamboyant personality whom Louis Sullivan dubbed "the dog man" shows Furness a man of his age, immersed in its most powerful currents and forces. It details his abolitionist upbringing in staid Philadelphia, the transformative experience of the Civil War (in which he served as a cavalry officer and earned a Congressional Medal of Honor), and its translation into swaggering architecture that met the needs for vivid commercial imagery in the Gilded Age. It recounts how Furness's rip-roaring professional style brought him success when he served a generation of veterans but helped make him a pariah in the transformed culture of America at the turn of the twentieth century."

Allen Evans architectural records and family papers by Allen Evans( )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Materials related to architectural projects are found in a project scrapbook of newsclippings as well as in an additional small quantity of correspondence, photographs, drawings and clippings. Evans preserved materials related to a small number of projects, and it may be inferred that these projects were ones in which he was particularly active. Of particular interest among these materials are: 1) reproductions of a legal deposition by Frank Furness concerning design of the Girard Bank Building; 2) correspondence with Alexander Cassatt; 3) a set of small-scale renderings (1921) by George W. Casey of Furness, Evans & Co. for All Saints Church, Wynnewood, PA. Formal architectural drawings are found for a few projects in which the Evans family was directly involved, e.g., family houses and St. Mary's Church. Some projects documented by Evans are not found in published job lists of the firm's work. The collection contains no office project files. Limited financial materials for the firm are found in the collection for the years 1908-1923, not complete. A group photograph shows members of Furness, Evans & Co. in 1918
