One of the founders of the T-Square Club, Clement Remington undertook classes in architectural drawing at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. From 1885-1886 he taught both architectural and freehand drawing at the Franklin Institute Drawing school and joined the Philadelphia Chapter of the AIA as a junior member in 1886. In 1889 he won that organization's traveling scholarship. Remington worked for both George T. Pearson (1887) and Horace Trumbauer, but his last note in the Philadelphia city directories occurs in 1907 and by 1908 he is listed in Hendricks' Architects and Builders Guide as an architect in Haddonfield, NJ. With this information, it is not surprising that most of the work reported by the Philadelphia Real Estate Record and Builders Guide is located in New Jersey.
