American famed architect. Sullivan established a style that was at once functional and intrinsically American; characteristically in the skyscraper stressing the steel skeleton verticality. His first noted design which brought him notoriety and success was the Chicago Auditorium, 1886-1889. His finest designs include the Wainwright Building, 1890-91, the Schiller Building, 1891-92, the Stock Exchange Building, 1893-94 and the Transportation Building at the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893.
Sullivan attended the Institute of Technology in MA., worked for a Chicago architect in 1873 and went to Paris in 1874 to study at Ecole des Beaux Arts. He joined in partnership with architect Dankmar Adler in 1879, successful for both of them, which ended in 1895. He continued to develop his original views and principles in his writings, "Kindergarten Chats," 1918 and "The Autobiography of an Idea", released in 1924.
Sullivan married Margaret Hattabough in 1899 and they divorced in 1917. He died in Chicago, 14 April 1924.
