Heins & LaFarge, prominent late 19th/early 20th century civic architects

Both men had studied at MIT and then worked for Henry Hobson Richardson.  Two of their most significant designs were St. John the Divine, in Morningside Heights, NYC (bottom image) and The Cathedral of St. Matthew’s in Washington, DC.  The latter church  was where the funeral for President Kennedy was held.
