Collcutt, Thomas Edward

Collcutt, Thomas Edward (1840–1924). Oxford-born English architect who worked in Street's office before establishing his own London practice in 1869. Collcutt's work was in a free Renaissance style, of which the façades of the Royal English Opera House (later Palace Theatre), Cambridge Circus, London (1889), and the very fine Imperial Institute, London (1887–93, lamentably demolished except for the handsome tower), were the best examples. He also worked in a relaxed Arts-and-Crafts style, designing houses at Totteridge, Herts. (1904), and the library, tuck-shop, and Murray Scriptorium at Mill Hill School, London (of the same period). From 1906 he was in partnership with Stanley Hinge Hamp (1877–1968), with whom he designed parts of the Savoy Hotel, London, in a simplified Renaissance manner much influenced by American precedents.

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.
