Eminent among the classicist architects, pacesetters for the entire movement, the firm of McKim, Mead and White produced works of elegance and great taste. The Boston Public Library, the New York Public Library, the Columbia University Morningside Campus, The Villard Houses, the Pennsylvania Railroad Station, scores of private residences, row houses, and clubs, and many illustrious public monuments, gates and promenades - all of these magnificent works are the result of the fortunate collaboration of Charles Follen McKim, William Rutherford Mead, and the ill-fated Stanford White. Their buildings were designed to be of lasting value, to enrich the eye and to sustain the spirit.
