The first major biography of Ralph Adams Cram (1863-1942), America's greatest church architect, this book offers a portrait of America's earliest avant garde, Boston's little known fin-de-siecle bohemia, in which Cram figured as leader, editor, art critic, poet, and designer. Disclosing for the first time the pivotal contribution of Boston's emerging gay subculture to New England's intellectual and cultural history, Douglass Shand-Tucci explores the relationship between artistic creativity and sexual orientation and between homosexuality and High Church Anglicanism. The first of two volumes, this study focuses on Cram's early architectural and literary work.
