Sternfeld, Harry

Harry Sternfeld Collection (036), Architect, 1888-1976

After studying architecture at the University of Pennsylvania, Harry Sternfeld was awarded the Paris Prize in 1914, but he took a teaching position at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh and delayed his study in Europe until after World War I. In 1923 Sternfeld left his position as head of the Department of Architecture at Carnegie-Mellon to become Professor of Design at the University of Pennsylvania, where he taught until his retirement in 1959.

The collection comprises drawings completed by Sternfeld while a student at the University of Pennsylvania and during his study at the American Academy in Rome. A series of student drawings executed in the School of Architecture between 1910 and 1911 is valuable for the study of architectural education during Paul Cret's tenure at the University.
