History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Mayers, Murray & Phillip was the sucessor firm to Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue, the prominent New York City architect. In the spring of 1924, after a trip to Los Angeles, where he was involved in building the public library, Goodhue succumbed to a heart attack, just days before his fifty-fifth birthday. After Goodhue's sudden death, his office was reorganized as Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue Associates to complete outstanding commissions. In 1931, the firm was renamed by its principal partners, Francis L.S. Mayers, Oscar Harold Murray, and Hardie Phillip. The firm closed in 1940.
