About this Item

The reknowned American Beaux-Arts architect famed for New York City's AT & T Building, MIT's Cambridge campus, Theodore N. Vail's mansion (Morristown, NJ) and much of the noted Rockefeller family estate Kykuit (Tarrytown, NY) spent much of the 1920s and '30s in France, where patron John D. Rockefeller Jr. placed him in charge of the restoration of the Palace of Versailles and Notre-Dame de Reims. TLS, 1p, 8½" X 9", New York, NY, 1924 July 2. Addressed to Dr. Samuel W. Stratton, president of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1861-1931, noted University of Chicago physicist who created the Bureau of Standards). Near fine. Just a few years after completing MIT's campus, its creator writes to MIT's president, "It is a great pleasure to hear from you and to know that you are going to be accessible all summer. I am, of course, involved just now in clearing up accumulations during my long absence, but look forward to an early date when I can come over to Boston to see you." Handsomely signed. Bosworth was an MIT graduate, by the way -- class of 1889. A quite uncommon autograph. Bookseller Inventory # 28553
