Holabird, John

(1921–2009)
In 1880 Holabird’s grandfather established the Chicago firm, Holabird & Root. He too eventually joined the firm, retiring as a partner in 1987. From the Chicago Board of Trade to the Marquette Building to the Art Deco Palmolive Building, the firm’s effect on the Chicago skyline was profound.
