Vaughan, Henry, 1845-1917


Vaughan was born in England, and came to the United States in 1881, where he became a leading figure in the late Gothic revival. His ecclesiastical designs inspired Ralph Adams Cram and others. With George Frederick Bodley, he laid the plans for the Cathedral Church of St. Peter and St. Paul (Washington Cathedral) in Washington, DC, which was begun in 1907. In 1895 Vaughn remodeled Unity Church in North Easton, MA, which was originally designed by John Ames Mitchell (nephew of Oliver Ames Jr.), in 1875.
