    DescriptionWilliam L. Price, a disciple of Frank Furness who practiced in Philadelphia from 1883 to 1916, established the architectural character of two resorts, Atlantic City and Miami, thus shaping the architecture of the Roaring Twenties. Although his biggest and best-known projects, the Art Deco Traymore Hotel in Atlantic City and the Chicago Freight Terminal are both destroyed, his arts and crafts utopian community in Arden, Delaware, survive to attest to the vigour of his ideas. Price left a legacy of houses, railway stations, and commercial structures stretching from Atlantic City to Chicago, and from Canada to Florida that were widely emulated. In addition, he was a writer and furniture designer whose work was regularly featured in Gustav Stickley's "The Craftsman". His role in shaping American architecture is uncovered in this volume, which documents the architect's complete works - including over 350 hotels, houses and pieces of furniture - bringing to light this unknown American master.
