Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Federal Triangle, a triangular-shaped complex of federal office buildings in Washington, D.C., was begun in 1926 under the leadership of Secretary of the Treasury Andrew Mellon. As the last major construction project for neoclassical architecture and for architectural sculpture in America, the Triangle is an important chapter in our cultural history. This is well demonstrated in Gurney's solidly researched, fully documented, and well-written study. There is also a fine introduction by Joshua Taylor, drafted in 1981, shortly before his death. Recommended for graduate collections specializing in art history, architectural history, or American studies. Jeffrey Weidman, Oberlin Coll. Libs., Ohio
