Ellis, Harvey (1852–1904). American architect. His eclecticism was typical of the period, but his chief claim to importance lies in his drawings, especially perspectives published in American Architect and Building News and elsewhere: he produced illustrations for L. S. Buffington that helped the latter's claims as a pioneer of the steel-framed sky-scraper. From 1902 until his death he was editor of The Craftsman.
