New York architect Grosvenor Atterbury received his B.A. from Yale University in 1891 before entering Columbia University to pursue architecture. Soon he was living in France and studying at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, in the Atelier Blondel. A housing specialist, Atterbury is chiefly remembered as the architect for Forest Hills Gardens on Long Island, a Russell Sage Foundation project. A few Philadelphia architects did pass through his New York office, but more were probably influenced by Atterbury's approach to housing. His designs appeared frequently in the early twentieth-century T-Square Club annual catalogues.
