Historical/Biographical Note

Louis Eugene (L.E.) Jallade (1876-1957) was a Canadian-born architect who recieved his education in both New York City and Paris. After attending the famous Ecole des Beaux Arts from 1901-1903, he worked in New York City and Boston both independantly and in conjunction with Paul E. DuBoy and [Frederick R.] Allen & [Chalres] Collens. Some of his most prominent works are the Thomson Meter Co. Building (New York), the Ansonia Hotel (New York), and the Naval YMCA building in Norfolk, VA, which was his first independant commission (1906-1908). Jallade was stylistically conservative and designed mostly in the style of Hennebique concrete system, a reinforced concrete system pioneered by architect Francois Hennebique (1842-1921).
