Architect. Apprenticed to a sign painter at age 13, he began his architectural career in 1860 working for John Stevens, a Boston builder-architect. He trained by working with established architects, not at a school, which was typical for the time. He came to Syracuse because he lost his job due to Civil War slowdown in building, starting with Horace Nelson White, who was a prominent Syracuse architect. His most productive period was from the Civil War to World War I, working in every style popular at the time. He designed hotels, churches, private homes, and buildings for Cornell and Syracuse University. Most notably the Crouse Memorial College for Women at S.U., which still is in use, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. He also designed the memorial for Brigadier General Amos P. Granger in Oakwood Cemetery. From 1873 to 1881 he was a professor of architecture at Syracuse University, the third school in the US to offer a formal program. In 1895 he was appointed by Governor Levi Morton to be an advisor to the Capital commission during the construction of the State Capitol in Albany. His firm, King and King, founded in 1868, is still in business, being the oldest firm in New York state.
