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:
Modern Language Association
The Chicago Manual of Style
American Psychological Association
- 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.

Charles Adams Platt, 1861–1933, American architect, landscape architect, painter, and etcher, b. New York City. He studied etching with Stephen Parrish and painting, in Paris, under Boulanger and Lefebvre. He won distinction in both fields before travels in Italy turned his interests toward architecture and garden design. His architectural designs are based upon Italian and Georgian traditions. Platt's works include numerous important city and country residences, the latter complete with their gardens; the Freer Gallery of Art at Washington, D.C. (1918); an addition to the Corcoran Gallery; a building for the Leader News in Cleveland; buildings for the Univ. of Illinois at Urbana, including its library; and a number of buildings (e.g., chapel, library) for Phillips Academy, Andover, Mass. He wrote Italian Gardens (1894)
