Hood, Raymond M(athewson)

Hood, Raymond M(athewson)
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.
