Stamp,Gavin Mark

Stamp,Gavin Mark (1948– ). English architectural historian and journalist with a particular interest in C19 and C20 architecture. He first came to notice in 1976 when he pointed out in no uncertain terms the shortcomings of Stirling's History Faculty Building, University of Cambridge, in which he himself had worked from the year of its opening (1968). He published pioneering studies of 1914–18 War Memorials (1977), the architecture of electricity (1979), and British architecture in India (1981). One of the organizers of the great Lutyens Exhibition (London 1981–2), he has written extensively about that architect, and, as founder of the Alexander Thomson Society, was instrumental in saving Holmwood, as well as publishing several important studies about him and his works. He has also written about the Scott dynasty, including a major study of ‘Middle’ Scott (2002). He has claimed his most influential writings might be his contributions to Private Eye.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
