Born: 1858, Died: 1937

Born in Carlinville, IL, William A. Boring attended a number of schools in pursuit of his architectural education, including the University of Illinois, Columbia University, and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. By 1890 Boring had returned to the United States and to a short stint with McKim, Mead & White. Soon, however, he established a partnership with Edward L. Tilton (Tilton & Boring).

Beginning in 1915 Boring was a professor at Columbia University, becoming the School of Architecture's first dean in 1931.
