Ingham and Boyd—Charles Tattersall Ingham (1876–1960) and William Boyd, Jr. (1882–1947)—created some of our most prominent public buildings in the 1920s and 1930s. They worked especially on educational buildings, and in particular they had the franchise for all the schools in Mount Lebanon up to the Second World War. Their style was generally classical or Renaissance, veering into Art Deco as time went on; in domestic architecture, they tended toward Colonial Revival or Federal.
