Marcus Tullius Reynolds
Birth: Aug. 20, 1869
Great Barrington
Berkshire County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Mar. 18, 1937
Albany
Albany County
New York, USA

Noted Architect. He received his early education in Albany, and at St. Paul's School, Concord, New Hampshire. A graduate of Williams College, Williamstown, Mass., in 1890, and Columbia University Architectural School, receiving his P.H.D. from Columbia in 1893. Returning to Albany to pursue his chosen profession, Reynolds used his natural talent with skill and with the certainty of understanding local and historical precedents, effectively changing the city's skyline. Always keeping in the forefront his, and the city's, Dutch and Yankee heritage; allowing the past to serve the present. His greatest and most recognizable building was the impressive dual headquarters for the Delaware and Hudson Railroad, and the Albany Evening Journal, now utilized as the administration center of the State University of New York. A splendid landmark along Albany's riverfront, adorned with a copper weathervane replica of explorer Henry Hudson's ship 'Half Moon,' a symbol of the capital city's renaissance. (bio by: Robert Bruce)
