Richard Upjohn's office has long been recognized as an important force in the architectural world of the United States in the mid-nineteenth century. Its large size compared to that of architects such as Alexander Jackson Davis, who worked alone, and its early concern with the development of professional standards, distinguished it in the still-pre-professional building world. Teaching young architects was another key aspect of Upjohn's office. This article discusses the character of the office as well as its occupants in order to explore the nature of this educational enterprise and its legacy.
