Fielding, Mantle

Mantle Fielding, architect, 1865-1941

Mantle Fielding studied architecture at MIT in 1884, soon after moving to Philadelphia and working in established architecture firms.  In 1889, Fielding established an independent pactice that continued until 1938, focusing mostly on colonial revival residential design.  Beyond the environs of Philadelphia, Mantle Fielding is probably better known as the compiler of an important source of biographical information regarding American artist, Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptors and Engravers, first published in 1926, that has gone into multiple revised editions.

This collection contains architectural drawings for one of Fielding's residential design, the Laughlin House.
