Atkinson, Robert Frank

Atkinson, Robert Frank (1871–1923). Articled to John Francis Doyle (1840–1913) of Liverpool, Atkinson opened his own office in London, and in 1912 designed the Midland Adelphi Hotel in Liverpool (completed in modified form by Stanley Hinge Hamp (1877–1968)). In 1907 he collaborated with the Chicago architect Daniel H. Burnham on the design of the steel-framed Selfridges Store in Oxford Street, London, although the architect of the façade was Francis S. Swales, who placed a Giant Order of Ionic columns (based on Philibert de l' Orme's Tuileries Palace in Paris), with panels of metal and glass between them, on the ground-floor base. This building set the style for grand Classical stores and offices in Great Britain until 1939.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
