John Russell Pope


The Awards are named for John Russell Pope, 1874-1937, best known as the architect of the Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Pope’s additional significant works include the National Archives Building, Constitution Hall, the Temple of the Scottish Right, and Woodend, a mansion in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

John Russell Pope was born in New York and educated at the American School of Architecture in Rome (later called the American Academy in Rome) and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He was renowned for interpreting European classicism in a new, American form.

As noted by architect and historian Stephen M. Bedford, Pope’s domestic and monumental architecture established him as a “leader in the development of highly refined and restrained American classicism.”
