Howe, George

(1886–1955) architect; born in Worcester, Mass. He graduated from Harvard and the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. At first designing fashionable arts and crafts-inspired houses with Mellor and Meigs, Philadelphia, in 1928 he reevaluated his work and in partnership with William Lescaze (1929–34) introduced the International Style to America in such buildings as the Philadelphia Savings Fund Society Building (1929–32), Philadelphia. Howe further promoted modernism by sponsoring the journals T-Square and Shelter.
