Topic: Ancient Architecture

Ernest R. Graham (1866-1936) was a prominent Chicago architect. He was Daniel Burnham’s principal assistant in overseeing the construction of the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893. Graham’s architectural firm was later responsible for designing scores of major structures, mostly in the classical tradition of the 1893 fair, for clients in cities across the United States.

The Archaeological Institute of America has received, from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, a gift to support lectures about ancient architecture. Since 1956, Graham Foundation grants have been offered to individuals and institutions in support of activities focused on architecture and the built environment.
