History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

A graduate of the College of the City of New York in 1870, Arthur Bates Jennings furthered his architectural studies in the offices of New York architects John Correja, George B. Post, and Russell Sturgis. By 1876, he had a private practice in New York City. During his early career, Jennings primarily designed residences, but by the 1880s, he began to specialize in church architecture, with some commercial and institutional work. Jennings retired from practice in 1919. He was also elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects.
