born March 29, 1881, Pawtucket, R.I., U.S.died Aug. 14, 1934, Stamford, Conn.U.S. architect.He studied at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge and the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He and John Mead Howells (1868–1959) won first prize in the 1922 Chicago Tribune Building competition; their design would be one of their many Neo-Gothic skyscrapers influenced by Cass Gilbert's Woolworth Building. Later he turned away from the revival of past styles; his Daily News (1930; with Howells) and McGraw-Hill (1930–31; with J.A. Fouilhoux) buildings, both in New York City, have cleaner lines, foreshadowing the Rockefeller Center complex (1929–40), which Hood and Fouilhoux went on to design with a team of architects.
