"During the first three decades of the twentieth century, Warren & Wetmore was one of the most successful and prolific architectural practices in America. Producing over three hundred major projects, including the celebrated Grand Central Terminal (designed in association with Reed & Stern), the charismatic Beaux Arts-trained Whitney Warren (1864-1941) and shrewd lawyer Charles D. Wetmore (1866-1941) grasped the stylistic requirements and prevailing architectural tastes of the vibrant period leading up to the Great Depression. The firm's bold and creative interpretation of classical and French styles, as translated into American practice, reflected the cultural, social, and business aspirations of the country's ruling class....[This] is the first book to examine exclusively the scope of the firm's rich and varied body of work."
