History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Eggers & Higgins was a New York architectural firm partnered by Otto Reinhold Eggers (1882–1964) and Daniel Paul Higgins (1886–1953). The pair were longtime associates of Pope in the firm he founded in 1903 as the Office of John Russell Pope, Architect. They changed the name of the firm to Eggers & Higgins in 1937, soon after Pope's death.
