Shreve, Raymond Harold

Shreve, Raymond Harold (1877–1946). American architect. With William Frederick Lamb (1883–1952) he formed a partnership with Carrère & Hastings (1920), dropping the Carrère and Hastings names in 1924. They designed various corporate, commercial, and institutional buildings. Among their works were the General Motors Building, NYC (1925–7), and the Empire State Building, Fifth Avenue, NYC (designed 1928–29, when Arthur Loomis Harmon (1878–1958) became a partner). As Shreve, Lamb, & Harmon they designed Brill Brothers Store (1933–4), Hunter College (1939–40—with Harrison and Fouilhoux), and many other works in and around NYC. On his own account Harmon designed the Shelton Towers Hotel, NYC (1923–4), a good example of set-back design. In 1943 the firm became Shreve, Lamb, & Harmon Associates.

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.
