Thomas Sully (architect)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thomas Sully (November 24, 1855—March 14, 1939) was a largely self-trained American architect based in New Orleans, Louisiana. He designed many large residences on Upper St. Charles Avenue, such as the Picard House, the Francis Johnson House (2727 St. Charles Ave.), and public buildings in New Orleans and in other cities as well.

Sully was born in Mississippi City, Mississippi, to George Washington Sully and the former Harriet Jane Green. He studied architecture in the office of Larmour and Wheelock in Austin, Texas, and with the firm of H. R. Marshall and J. Morgan Slade in New York City. He opened his New Orleans office in 1881. He married the former Mary Eugenia Rocchi in 1884, and the couple had one daughter, Jeanne Sully West. In 1889-1893 he worked in a partnership with Albert Toledano as Sully & Toledano.[1]

Among his designs were Memorial Hall of the Louisiana Historical Association, linked to the adjacent Howard Library, the Hennen Building, the original Whitney Building, Milliken Memorial Hospital, and the third St. Charles Hotel building, The Columns Hotel at 3811 St. Charles (one of a few still standing), the Grand Victorian Bed & Breakfast at 2727 St. Charles Ave. (also still in excellent condition today) all in New Orleans; the Vicksburg Hotel in Vicksburg, Mississippi; the Shreveport (Caddo Parish) Charity Hospital (formerly called the "Confederate Memorial Medical Center" and currently known as the "LSU Medical Center"), and the Caffery Sugar Mill near Franklin in St. Mary Parish. He was a member of the Boston Club, the Elks, and the Southern Yacht Club.[2]

He was a grand-nephew and namesake of the painter Thomas Sully. He is viewed as one of the most prominent Louisiana architects of the late nineteenth century.[3]
