Richmond Harold Shreve (June 25, 1877 – September 11, 1946) was a Canadian-American architect.


He was born on June 25, 1877 in Cornwallis, Nova Scotia, the son of Richmond Shreve, an Anglican priest, and Mary Catherine Parker Hocken.[1] Shreve attended Cornell University, taught there from 1902 to 1906, and was a member of the Sphinx Head Society.

He was president of the American Institute of Architects from 1941 through 1943.

He died on September 11, 1946 in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.


His company Shreve, Lamb and Harmon led the construction of the Empire State Building[2] as well as several Cornell University buildings.[3] Shreve was also the lead architect for the landmark 1937 Williamsburg Houses housing development in Brooklyn.

He was profiled in the book The 100 Most Notable Cornellians.
