Excerpt from William Strickland, the First Native American Architect and Engineer

Dunlap, in his History of the Arts of Design, gave eleven lines to William Strickland, and three lines to his brother George. It should be said in defense of Dunlap, however, that he confesses his letters of inquiry to the architect were ignored. Appleton's Cyclopaedia of American Biography contains a notice of about the same length. That Strickland's work is unknown in his own city is not therefore remarkable, but the last city in which he worked at his profession, paid him the distinguished honor of laying him to rest in a crypt in the building he had designed - the Capitol at Nashville, Tenn. It should be mentioned that there are a half-a-dozen valuable references to Strickland in Scharf & Westcott's "History of Philadelphia."

William Strickland was the son of a successful builder - but they did not call them that in those days. He himself gave his business as that of house carpenter. He was a charter member of the House Carpenters' Society, the rival of the Carpenters' Company, and when the society published its book of prices in 1812, the first challenge to the methods pursued by the older organization, William Strickland made the designs for the plates which illustrate it.
