1863–1942, American architect, b. Hampton
Falls, N.H. An ardent exponent of Gothic architecture, Cram produced
many collegiate and ecclesiastical works in a neo-Gothic style. Among
these are part of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City;
the graduate school and chapel at Princeton; and buildings at Williams,
Phillips Exeter Academy, Rice Univ., and the U.S. Military Academy at
West Point. After the withdrawal of B. G.
in 1914, the architectural firm with which he was associated was known as
Cram and Ferguson.
