William Sylvester Eames, James C. Marmaduke, Thomas Crane Young

Active 1885-1927

Firm Notes

The practice was based in Saint Louis, MO, but gained a national reputation in the early twentieth century, particularly after William Eames was elected President of the American Institute of Architects in 1904-1905; Eames followed the great New York architect, Charles Follen McKim, who held the office in 1902-1903; Eames died in 03/1915, but the firm continued until 1927 under the same name. Eames and Young produced office and institutional buildings throughout the United States, including the US Federal Prison, Leavenworth, KS, (1897), the Art Building for the Trans-Continental Exposition, Omaha, NB, (1897-1898), the US Federal Prison, Atlanta, GA, (1899) and the Education Building, Louisiana Purchase Exposition, 1903-1904, and the Rosenberg Library, Galveston, TX, (1904).

In 1908, Eames and Young had a Seattle office located in Room #1111 of the Alaska Building. (See R.L. Polk and Company's Seattle, Washington, City Directory, 1908, p. 1639.)
