Gallier, James, sen.

Gallier, James, sen. (1798–1868). Irish-born architect, he designed the ‘Chinese Bridge’ at Godmanchester, near Huntingdon, England (1827), and several houses in South Street, Mayfair, London, before emigrating to the USA in 1832 where he worked for a while in NYC, formed a short-lived partnership with Minard Lafever, and published The American Builder's General Price Book and Estimator (1833). He settled in New Orleans in 1834, in partnership with Charles Bingley Dakin, (1811–39—joined the following year by James Harrison Dakin), and established a successful practice, designing many important buildings, all in a Greek Revival style. The partnership broke up in 1836, and Gallier continued on his own, designing the City Hall, New Orleans, LA. (1845–50), a handsome building with a Greek Ionic portico. He published his autobiography in 1864.

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.
