Blow, Detmar Jellings

Blow, Detmar Jellings (1867–1939). London-born Arts-and-Crafts architect who travelled to Italy with Ruskin in 1889, and then worked for Philip Webb on East Knoyle Church, Wilts. A member of the Art-Workers' Guild from 1892, he laid the stonework for two cottages by Gimson in Leics., and then acted as clerk of works for Lethaby at Brockhampton Church, Herefs. He designed a cottage for the Cheap Cottages Exhibition at Letchworth, Herts. (1905), and from 1906 (when he was in partnership with the Beaux-Arts architect Fernand Billerey (1878–1951)) worked on numerous town-and country-houses, notably on the Duke of Westminster's estates. He designed Wilsford Manor, Salisbury, Wilts. (1904–6—his best house in the Arts-and-Crafts style), and Happisburgh Manor, Cromer, Norfolk (1900—a flint-and-brick house on a butterfly plan with thatched roof), as well as carrying out sensitive repairs and alterations to numerous churches. He was one of the most gifted architects of his generation.

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.
