Biographical Notes

Post came from a long-established New York family, and had a background in civil engineering; he prospered as an architect in the economically depressed 1870s and scored a major structural and artistic triumph with his New York Produce Exchange, New York, NY, 1881-1885, which stylistically influenced many other tall buildings in the US; sons, William S. and James O. Post joined their father's prestigious firm by 1905 and operated it after his death as "George B. Post and Sons, Architects;"
